Attract butterflies to your yard with this Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow plant (Brunfelsia Pauciflora Compact).

At first bloom, the flowers are dark purple; they then become lavendar and eventually fade to white. The plant blooms in the fall and its flowers will last more than a month.

Native to South America, it doesn't like the cold and can't tolerate temperatures below freezing.

  • A 4" pot of Brunfelsia Pauciflora Compact is $8 (March 2006).
