There is an area along a creek in Lampasas, Texas that I want to establish as a butterfly and bird park. There are various native plants there now, but I want to add plants that are hosts for butterflies and birds. One area on the property remains very wet most of the time and has mostly reed-like plants growing in it now. What other plants would do well in this constantly wet area?
The following native plants serve as hosts (adult nectar or larval food) to one or more butterfly or moth species and most are also attractive to birds. All are known to occur in or adjacent to Lampasas County.
