The following Plants are exceptionally good for
attracting Hummingbirds! Look for their new Symbol -
They are only on this page because at
least two reputable sources included them in their list. We do
NOT profess to be experts on Hummingbirds. But we've found that
most sources that list Hummingbird Plants don't tell you where to get
them. So we're trying to at least let you know which of our
plants are listed by the real experts as Hummingbird Plants.
HOWEVER, you must do a little
research! Not all hummingbirds go to every part of the
country. Here in Virginia, we only have the Ruby-Throated
Hummingbird. This is a list of plants that feed some hummingbirds in
some locations. Try searching Google for
"Regional Hummingbird List", Hummingbird plants for
Virginia, etc. Try to cross reference our list (which can be
printed) with information specific to your area. Then make a
list that covers the entire growing
when considering plants:
-Red plants do attract Hummers but they ultimately go for nectar
quantity/quality even in non-red plants, so a red plant with poor
nectar will draw them in but you better have quality plants ready when
they buzz in and says "So where's the beef?"
-You need a selection of plants that bloom from when they arrive to
when they leave and nesting areas in the form of trees and shrubs.
-You should provide a Hummingbird feeder for times between
blooms. (NO honey! Research this so you do it right!)
