Spicebush Swallowtail Butterfly

Papilio troilus

Swallowtail butterflies fly high and gather in colorful groups around puddles. They flit and fly as some of the most dazzling showstoppers in the gardens.

Adopt one of these beauties for someone who brightens your day and brings out the best in you.

Where to spot them on the High Line

Find them soaring high above Chelsea Thicket, at 21st Street, the Wildflower Field between 27th and 30th streets, or the Flyover, between 24th and 27th streets.
