Collection: Caterpillar Plants

No butterfly garden is complete without plants that sustain caterpillars. A caterpillar is essentially a baby butterfly, and plants that they can lay eggs on make the adults feel extra-welcome. Plus, with caterpillar plants, you get to watch the entire life cycle of the butterfly unfold, which is an absolutely amazing process! It's important to know that caterpillar plants *will* get eaten and have holes in their leaves, sometimes their flowers. Don't panic! This is exactly what is supposed to happen with these plants, and under no circumstances should you apply any kind of pesticides - even organic ones - on them.
