Is that Verbena bonariensis I see? It really does attract Butterflies, Motherflies and Butteroths, doesn't it!

Lol..it does look to be part butterfly, part moth doesn't it ! I guess that's where the term butteroths comes from ?
Yes Spritzhenry, this is verbena bon. It loves to seed around in the garden and I usually let it grow where ever it decides to come up.
