"Use Eupatorium cannabinum in your Butterfly Garden, since the Red Admiral, Holly Blue, Peacock, Large Skipper, Green-veined White and Silver-washed Fritillary visit this plant" from Urban Butterfly Garden, which states "Urban Gardens could play an important role in Butterfly Conservation by setting aside an area of the garden how ever big or small, for a selection of easy maintenance Flowers, or Shrubs, like Buddleia, Wild Marjoram (oregano), some Meadow Grasses maybe a few Nettles, will encourage butterflies and moths as well as other beneficial insects like Ladybirds and Hoverflies into the garden." Their website includes lists of plants for butterflies together with information about Barnack Nature Reserve and about British Butterflies.

It is worth remembering that especially with roses that the colour of the petals of the flower may change - The following photos are of Rosa 'Lincolnshire Poacher' which I took on the same day in R.V. Roger's Nursery Field:-

Form of Rose Bush

There are 720 roses in the Rose Galleries; many of which have the above series of pictures in their respective Rose Description Page.

So one might avoid the disappointment that the 2 elephants had when their trunks were entwined instead of them each carrying their trunk using their own trunk, and your disappointment of buying a rose to discover that the colour you bought it for is only the case when it has its juvenile flowers; if you look at all the photos of the roses in the respective Rose Description Page!!!!
