One female PVST ovipositing on our Aristolochia; other apparent male nectaring on Phlox paniculata, "Jeana," our best late July/August butterfly draw. It's a naturally-occurring cultivar available from some native plant nurseries, e.g. New Moon Nurseries. Swallowtails especially seem to like its small flowers.
