Pawpaw Trees
For Your Butterfly Garden.


The larvae of Zebra Swallowtail Butterflies,
Eurytides marcellus feed exclusively on young Pawpaw foliage.

They are found only in the vicinity of Pawpaw trees.

The adult is of such great beauty that Pawpaw trees are often planted
in Butterfly Gardens to attract them.

Their colors and patterns warn birds not to eat them, because they are imbued with toxic chemicals from the Pawpaw tree. (**see link below)



Larvae

Calmly meandering among the Pawpaws, these caterpillars chew on the edges of the leaves.

We don't begrudge them their munchings, knowing what they will become.

Zebra Swallowtail Adult

We see these lovelies fluttering around the trees in our nursery all summer.

They alight on a likely leaf, deposit one tiny white egg, and off they go.

 




Chrysalis

We find these randomly attached to stems, leaves and pots in the nursery.

Sometimes we have Zebra chrysalises for sale.
Please email if interested.
