Butterflies in Phoenix

I pinned a few things on attracting butterflies. I do companion planting and have zinnia, gazania (I think), lantana and nasturtiums all in my 9' x 9' corner plot (pictured). Plus I have a lemon tree that is buzzing with bees.

However, I really wanted to attract butterflies. Based on something I saw on Pinterest, I added a yellow plate that is hanging low to the ground and put some cut orange slices on it.

I tried googling what butterflies are in season but all I get is the butterly exhibits.

So, GardenWeb, what is appealing to butterflies this time of year...or suburban Phoenix?
