Trees come in many sizes. A few small flowering trees provide nectar for butterflies, including those listed below.
Early season butterflies, including Hairstreaks, Azures, and others, slip nectar at a Flowering Dogwood or Lilac, while a variety of summer butterflies, including Skippers, use the nectar of the Chaste Tree for food.
Trees not only add beauty and interest to your yard, but they are also beneficial to wildlife and the environment.
