Old Time Nectar Plants

I found this book available as a free download at:
http://horizontalhive.com/download-free/american-honey-plants-pellett.pdf

While it appears to be only for bee keepers, it’s advice can also be applied to butterflies and all pollinators.

It’s a bit daunting when first look at the 312 pages, but becomes easier to use if you do a search for your specific state.

I’ve found that many of the plants and trees I have planted are listed in this book.
Did you know that TULIP-POPLAR or TULIP TREE (Liriodendron tulipifera) is a good nectar plant?

    Interesting book. And we have tulip poplars especially because they are host plants for the eastern tiger swallowtail, too.
