So, you love butterflies. You have a small yard or butterfly garden and you want a beautiful feature tree. The tree needs to be a small flowering tree in order to fit the space and attract butterflies. So, which flowering dwarf trees attract butterflies best?
Many flowering plants and trees attract pollinators, but some just attract them because of their color. Crape Myrtles are gorgeous, have tons of blooms, bloom for months, and are colorful so they attract butterflies. The problem is that they don’t produce the butterfly’s favorite food source (nectar) so the butterflies don’t tend to stick around for long. What you want are Flowering Dwarf Trees that produce pollen and nectar in abundance!
