Blooms in early fall, butterflies love it, dry soil and sun are its preferred habitat. Think I'll propose marriage. http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/43872212/list/great-design-plant-liatris-aspera
Plant native wildflowers if you want a diversity of butterflies. If you want to attract butterflies during their peak season, from late summer into early fall, plant flowers that bloom during that time. Tall blazingstar (Liatris aspera) blooms from August into October, depending on your location, and will bring in all kinds of pollinators.

Are you looking for ways to save money in the garden this year? Here are some great ideas for you... http://bit.ly/1McOI0I

What are some of your favorite ways to pinch pennies in the garden?
I love to garden, but I don't love the price tag that sometimes comes along with it. If you're not careful, gardening can quickly become an expensive hobby…but it doesn't have to be. There are tons of ways to pinch pennies and still have a beautiful and bountiful garden.

I am a kick ass gardener who enjoys failing miserably. Read about my experiments, struggles with deer, awful clay soil and how much my kids hate gardening.
