November in the butterfly garden

I have seen Red Admiral, Small Tortoiseshell and Brimstone butterflies in the first half of November.

These are all species that spend the winter in adult form (as a butterfly). Comma and Peacock butterflies hibernate too.

November plants

Hebe plants and Buddleia weyeriana have attracted butterflies in November.

I've also produced an overview of the butterfly year and there's a list of butterflies flying each month on my calendar page.
