Host The Most Hummingbirds By Planting Their Favorite Flowers

Why Plant Perennials To Attract Hummingbirds?

Hummingbirds look for bright colors, rather than scent, to find good nectar sources. They are most attracted to red, orange, and pink blooms, with tubular flower shapes that accommodate their long, slender beaks. They like to rest in the shade between fast-flying and sips of nectar, so be sure to plant shrubs where they can perch and nest. Once hummingbirds find a reliable nectar source, they'll return for years. Plant their favorite perennials to keep them coming back for more in your garden.
