The beautiful white Echinacea is a hardy perennial which thrives in clay soil (always a must in our garden). The bees and butterflies find the flowers attractive and the birds love the seedheads.

Flowers attractive to butterflies.
This lemon scented plant is loved by bees and butterflies.
The Arbutus unedo tree flowering in my garden at the moment is a great source of food for both bees and butterflies. Captured this rather grumpy looking Red Admiral butterfly enjoying the nectar today! The tree will carry on flowering for quite a few weeks and at the same time, the fruit from last year’s flowers will ripen. It is quite a stunning sight!
