Large Skipper on Sweet William. 18 June 2004
Large Skipper. June 2002.
Brimstone. In my previous garden in Wiltshire. 1999.
Sweet Williams are particularly useful for attracting Large Skipper butterflies.
Although it's classed as a biennial (meaning that you sow the seed one year to flower in the next year), I have found that my plants have survived through the winters and continued to flower.
Plant Type: Biennial
Flowers in June
