whether it attracts butterflies also depend alot of your location. The weeping willow is the host plant for the Phalanta phalantha phalantha (The Leopard)
Ahh.. have seen the Phalanta haning around the willow tree at the nurseries before.
I was lucky enough to "lure" lime butterflies with lime plants into my terrace garden..unlucky enough to have mynahs eat the caterpillars too. seen an occasional big black one and quite a bit of the little brown ones (dun know their names).
I usually see quite a bit of butterflies in the neighbourhood on a sunny day... and my plot is to lure them all into my garden..haha.
What do i need to provide to make the butterflies come?
