There are still loads of nectar sources here, but a recent, very light frost seems to have ended most butterfly sightings. There are 18 Lithonia, 15 Large Lantanas, and hundreds of feet of Cannas all in high bloom along with many other blooming plants, however, Butterfly bush essentially finished for the season.
