Description
The Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) is a milkweed butterfly (subfamily Danainae). It is perhaps the best known of all North American butterflies. Its wings feature an easily recognizable orange and black pattern. The Monarch is famous for its southward migration and northward return in summer from Canada to Mexico and Baja California which spans the life of three to four generations of the butterfly.

Zinnia is a genus of annual and perennial plants. They are native to scrub and dry grassland in an area stretching from the Southwestern United States to South America, with a centre of diversity in Mexico. Zinnias are popular garden flowers, usually grown from seed, and preferably in fertile, humus-rich, and well-drained soil, in an area with full sun. Zinnias seem especially favored by butterflies, and many gardeners add zinnias specifically to attract them.
