I've been growing Butterfly plants for several years.  This year I noticed this is the third time the caterpillars have stripped this plant.

Each time they feast, I've cut the stems back.
This is what they are eating on.

Today I counted 16 caterpillars!

But then again, this will be the lovely result!

Totally infested, but then the end results are good. :)
Happy ODW!

Such a shame! Catterpillars ate one of my red crrant bush this summer.
