You can find more information on the Wildflower Center web page about butterfly gardens by selecting Explore Plants from the side bar, next select Clearinghouse Publications, then Native Plant Library. You will find a 2-page PDF file titled "Butterfly Gardening" that you can download. You can also find a book, Texas Wildscapes: Gardening for Wildlife by Noreen Damude and Kelly C. Bender in the Wildflower Center's Wild Ideas store that will give you more ideas about plants that attract butterflies. The Native Plant Society of Texas has a list of deer-resistant plants in Camouflage Gardening that not only gives deer-resistant plants that are native to Central Texas but also tells you why the deer avoid them.
