A Conversation for Butterfly Bushes
Dandelion Pegleen Started conversation Sep 9, 1999
As I'm positively so UN-green fingered that I could be the Reserve Rider for Pestilence, I'd like to ask a really botanically stupid question.
What is it about Buddleia Davidii that attracts butterflies so much that the common name for the plant is "Butterfly Bush"? Is it pollen, scent, flower markings, all of the above? Or are the butterflies enjoying some butterfly pheromone equivalent of catnip? And if so, would we humans be able to derive any woohoo-ness from it?
