The Butterfly Guide lists the Morning Glory as a favorite plant of the Cloudless Sulfur (Phoebis sennae) Butterfly.
Butterflies are most attracted to the colors purple, orange, yellow and red.
You may wish to provide your own butterfly habitat to help preserve butterflies in your area by planting a butterfly garden. Besides helping to preserve these beautiful creatures, you would gain the enjoyment of watching them in their daily lives. You're preserving butterfly images in your needlecraft work or crochet butterfly afghan and may be part of the effort to help preserve them in real life as well.
If this is something that you wish to do, help is on the Internet.
Need more info for your area? For those of you in the US, brochures on Butterfly Gardens and Habitats for specific areas of the United States are available at a small fee from the North American Butterfly Association.
To find more information on this on the Internet, do a Net Search on the subject "butterfly habitat".
