I've been reading books on beekeeping and planting flowers for butterflies. I found out that lupines don't provide nectar but the plant is food for many caterpillars species. For bees, you have to make sure to plant different kinds of flowers because some bees have short tongues and others have longer tongues. I learned that the orchid bee and bumblebees are better for fruit trees. Mostly though, I've been trying to cram as many flowers into a small space as I can. Has anyone made a butterfly or bee garden? Any advice?
