"Instead of building a butterfly garden with aliens that will make no new butterflies, use native species that serve as hosts for butterfly larvae as well as a supply of nectar for adults. This requires some knowledge, because butterflies do not lay their eggs on any old plant. They lay their eggs only on the plant species to which their larvae are adapted." — Douglas W. Tallamy, Bringing Nature Home
