This book was just what I needed to learn about attracting humming birds and

butterflies. This has been very useful for figuring out how to start my garden.

I am very visual, so the beautiful pictures in the book and the general text design layout

makes it easy to read.

I live in a townhouse near Salt Lake City, and I want to build a few planters to attract some butterflies. This book gave all the information I needed to make the difficult choices when deciding what plants I need. It has a guide in the back that is full of drawings of each common species (in this case better than photos because subtle distinguishing features can be exaggerated) along with information such as range, host plants, caterpillar, plants they find attractive, and other interesting comments. I have seen a few swallowtails and monarchs in the area, so those are the ones I am going to try and attract. Thanks to Sally Roth's insight and perfectly laid out book, I know exactly what I need to do in my tiny butterfly garden. Then, once I graduate from grad school and get a place with a bit more space, I will know where to turn to plan a much larger landscape.

Sally Roth does a great job giving the perfect amount of information. I learned a ton while reading this book, and was not bored for a single second. I came to one point in the reading where I wanted to get some info on Asters, so I quickly flipped to the index to get some instant gratification, and the info I was looking for was on the very next page! There are tables throughout the book to give guidance in plant selection that are extraordinarily helpful, and thanks to my engineering background, I love tables, I think they're great. There is a table for plants that thrive in the shade, a table for vines, a table for trees, and many others.

In this book there is plenty of good information about hummers too, but I already know that hummers in my area are super easy to entice. I put out a pair of feeders late summer last year and promptly had a ton of broad-tailed hummingbirds on scene.

I found the book extremely informative. There are numerous recommendations of different plant species to attract and nourish North American butterflies and their caterpillars. The book would make a wonderful project for young people and their parents to do together to explore the natural world, beautify their yard, support dwindling numbers of species and just have fun together. Information about hummingbirds is just as delightful.

This book provides a wealth of information on different types of butterflies and the specific plants that attract them.

It also contains very useful information for creating an inviting habitat for hummingbirds.

The detailed information on particular plants and flowers, when and where they bloom, available colors, and what they attract is wonderful.

There are a few garden designs as well, just enough to encourage you to come up with your own ideas.

Covers important items like providing a habit that provides for food, water, shelter, nesting materials (for hummingbirds), host plants (for butterflies), and so forth; as well as a few fun craft-type projects that some will enjoy.

Easy to browse casually or read up on a topic of interest.

There are 70 pages of butterfly illustrations and 14 pages of hummingbird illustrations and descriptions and 14 pages of garden designs as well.
I am looking forward to planting the right things in my garden and watching butterflies!
