Black Swallowtail Butterfly - Caterpillars and Chrysalises


Black Swallowtail

Papilio polyxenes

Witness the miracle of metamorphosis! Caterpillars will need a food source when they arrive. You may purchase your host plant from Shady Oak Butterfly Farm or from a local plant nursery. Black Swallowtail Butterflies eat Parsley, Fennel, Queen Anne's Lace, celery and dill.

One 4" potted plant will feed 1 larvae. One 6" potted plant will feed 2-3 larvae.

Be certain the plant has not been sprayed with insecticides, including the organic pesticide, BT. Caterpillars usually take from one to three weeks to reach pupation size.

** Butterflies can eat a great deal during the larval stage. Please be certain you have the correct amount of host plants if you are ordering larvae.**

Adult Black Swallowtail Butterfly Wing Span: 3 1/4 - 4 1/4 inches
