Butterflies on my sedum

Asked September 13, 2017, 1:30 PM EDT

My sedum is a magnet to butterflies, but I cannot tell what type they are. They sort of look like a monarch but I can find the exact one on my book. Could snyone there identify it for me?

Hi,

These are Painted Lady butterflies. They have numerous this year, and they love sedum! https://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/species/Vanessa-cardui
