American Lady Butterfly

Tell me if I’m wrong, but this pretty flying flower looks like the American Lady.  I studied my guidebook several times to get a positive id.  Fortunately it was quite happy with posing prettily for me on my Salvia ‘Mystic Spires’ so I was able to get several shots.  These two were my favorites so I thought I would share them with all of you.  :)

  1. Lovely butterfly!

    Does ‘Mystic Spires’ overwinter for you? I tried it two years ago, but it didn’t return. Loved it.

    Oh yeah, I’ve had two of them for 3 years now. I leave the spent foliage up all winter and cut it back in the spring. :)
