One of the most glorious butterflies of the eastern United States. This common yellow and black-striped swallowtail is large and widespread.
Open woodlands and adjacent areas, including suburban gardens. Do attract them to your garden, try putting out aromatic oriental lilies in pots. The swallowtails and the lilies, each by themselves are quite magnificent -- but together they are magical!
Throughout warm weather.
Tuliptree (Liriodendron tulipifera), Black Cherry (Prunus serotina) and others.
