The moths like lots of plants. Ceratostigma willmottianum is number one here. Though maybe I think that because it's just outside the window so I see it there more often

I think the larvae like hedge bedstraw as well which is good because I have loads of that. Not much lady's BS now

 You can cut it back but also I'd dig it up in autumn, split it up and replant a few of the best bits. This is a big plant in a few years, not tall but spreading

I'm afraid the proper name for a plant just rolls off my tongue Mike

If I know the plant the name is there.

A plant might have several common names. A common name might be shared by several plants.

The binomial system has one name for one plant

Nothing wrong with non native. We all wait in anticipation for the hummingbird hawkmoth to turn up. They can fly and a southerly wind brings them in. It's just nature

Nettles are only best for some caterpillars

and I would ID your caterpillars before you decide they're not native.

If you grow a selection of shrubs and flowers from different families you'll have the best chance of attracting the greater number of species.
