Homeowners who are the most successful at attracting hummingbirds combine the use of feeders and hummingbird food plants. Plan plantings so that nectar-producing plants are blooming throughout the growing season. Also plant flowers that attract small, soft-bodied insects, which provide a protein source for hummingbirds. Other plants provide wintering hummingbirds with roosting cover on cold winter nights.
Here are some excellent plants to attract hummingbirds (*denotes wild plants):
|Herbaceous Plants |
Hollyhock (single blooming varieties)
Blazing Star (Liatris)*
