Cabbage Whites

The Cabbage White is our most common butterfly. They’re active throughout the summer and can be seen in just about any habitat – lawns, fields, vacant lots – with flowers in bloom. Plants in the mustard family (including cabbage) are the preferred food of Cabbage White caterpillars.
