Just a tip re: attracting butterflies:
We attended a "Butterfly Fiesta" at an environmental center in Maryland a couple of years ago (www.thorpewood.org), and we learned among other things that one should plant MILKWEED to feed butterflies. So if that's what you're going for, do it. We started a Butterfly garden last year and it was a great success, and the more plants and longer you have them, the more they learn it's the cool place to hang out. "Build It and They Will Come."
Good Luck with the Garden.
