Dill and fennel, I have them both, and sassafras trees. I've always planted extensively for pollinators. Sadly, every year I see less. I can remember when they were to numerous to count. I can remember putting fennel in an arrangement and two days later seeing caterpillars in my vase. No more.

This is the main passionflower I can grow here - attracts various insects but never seen any butterflies near it. This one is not edible (for humans!)



I have another that is not nearly as vigorous and has really insignificant white flowers but great fruit! Go figure! Can't find a pic at the moment.

They have formed their chrysalids which look identical to the normal Monarch chrysalids except they are in miniature! Only about half the size.

The first one emerged today - definitely the African Monarch:
