Nature Walks Reveal the Fabulous Zebra Butterfly
Perhaps you are fortunate as we are to have a near perfect habitat for the zebra butterfly with pawpaw trees, (food for their larvae), open woodlands near streams and rivers, pasture and pine woods. Sugar Hollow has an abundance of all of these features.
With the right nourishment their mating season can extend up to six months. They feed on the nectar and pollen of the flowers of blackberry (we have a pasture full of the wild delicious sort) lilac (check), redbud (check), verbena and common milkweed (check-check).
Not only does the zebra swallowtail enjoy a rich habitat at The Inn at Sugar Hollow Farm, but, as well, you will enjoy our Blue Ridge Mountain views and leisurely visits to our nearby wineries, micro-breweries and historical sites.
