Within Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, this beautiful small butterfly can be found in almost any habitat. The caterpillars accept a wide range of host plants from the parsley and carrot families, and can sometimes be found on garden parsley and fennel.
There are multiple broods in Oregon, with the last caterpillars overwintering as pupae to eclose (hatch) in April. Desert populations typically just have one spring brood, as the host plant is dried up before the start of summer.
We raise hundreds of them on our farm each summer. Our local populations prefer a couple of different desert parsleys.
