Julia Butterfly Caterpillars or Chrysalises
Julia Butterfly Dryas iulia
Experience the wonder of metamorphosis! If purchasing larvae, they will need a food source when they arrive. You may purchase your host plant from Shady Oak Butterfly Farm or a local plant nursery. Here at Shady Oak Butterfly Farm, we sell Passionvine to feed Julia Butterflies. If ordering elsewhere, ensure the plant has not been sprayed with insecticides, including the organic pesticide BT. Two 4" potted plants will typically feed three larvae.
** Butterflies can eat a great deal during the larval stage. Please be sure you have the correct number of host plants ordering larvae.**
