Response to Plants that attract hummers and butterflies equally

I had forgotten about Clethra. I think it is considered the native alternative to the Asian butterfly bushes. I got a start at last year's local plant swap so mine may take a couple of year to fill in and start blooming. Another good plant that isn't available in our local nurseries and would never known about it if Sarah hadn't suggested it a few years ago. So when I heard that one of our swappers was bringing it last year I jumped on it.
