SI-Q How do you get a butterfly to come to lunch?

We choose the flowers here in the pavilionbecause of their size, color and the way that they are a perfect shape for the butterflyto insert the proboscis and drink their nectar.

Smithsonian Gardens brings us different plantsevery week for the butterflies because we have to keep nectaring plants at all timeshere in the pavilion.

The pavilion’s title is Butterflies + Plants:Partners in Evolution.

It’s a visual display, a living displayto show the public how plants, butterflies, pollinators interact with one another.
