It seems all butterflies are enjoying the clerodendron shrub as you can see this yellow Tiger Swallowtail enjoying the nectar.

It’s finally a decent size where I can see if it attracts butterflies or not. Hands down yes. Yay highly highly recommend this plant.

Yesterday this Eastern Tiger Swallowtail let me get up close and personal.

What a lovely lovely butterfly. You can see it here enjoying one of its top favorite flowers, Echinacea or Cone Flower.

If it is really lucky it can live up to one month in this form. The yellow tiger can be a male or a female and there is also a black tiger that can only be a female.
