I’m creating a butterfly garden with milkweed and food flowers, I got a lot of caterpillars eating on the milkweed, but I don’t know what plants I could plant next as a host for the chrysalis to grow. Can you help me? Also, how far do I need to plant it from the milkweed?

I've heard they like sunflowers but haven't seen any of mine use the sunflowers in our flower patch. I do find them all summer long under the lip of our porch on 8-9" mustard plants. I've found them as far as 30 yards from the milkweed patch so as long as there is some place covered from most elements nearby they should be OK.
