Somewhat oxymoronic butterfly name.

Woodland Skipper

(on Verbena bonariensis).

I put down some seeds for the Garden Verbena but it didn't come up. I was disappointed cause I love it and it does attract a lot of butterflies. Beautiful photo.

The Verbena in the picture is a tall, spindly plant -- the flowers sort of hover, mid-garden. I have not tried to grow it from seed, but it has self-seeded a few times in my garden.
