Check this out. You need to use a Zip code. I used one for Watertown NY 13601. It generates a list of plants ranked according to the butterflies they attract (caterpillars).

Philadelphia Fleabane, a native wildflower at my cottage attracts 21 species in that zip code area. Probably similar here. That's a lot for a plant my gardeners normally cut down, but not this year.
