The female butterflies would only lay their eggs on that plant. An example of caterpillar plant is pipevine (Aristolochia tomentosa). You can also plant passion flower. Although butterflies will feed on nectar plants, this is still useless if you don’t have caterpillar plants because they won’t lay their eggs on those plants.
“Beautiful plants like roses are like a movie set to butterflies,” Glassberg says. “Caterpillars don’t feed on them, so they don’t have any functionality for butterflies.”
