Hummingbird Attracting Plants

In addition to providing them a natural diet, a hummingbird garden is an excellent way to attract hummingbirds to your feeder. If you plan carefully and select a variety of plants that flower throughout the season, you will be rewarded with happy hummers.  When designing your garden, remember that what is pleasing to our eye is also great for catching theirs.  Arrange plants with variation in heights from shortest to tallest and group varieties and colors together for the biggest impact.
