Attract Hummingbirds to Your Garden

Well, this isn't the best photo I've ever taken! But there was a screen between myself and this lovely little jewel of a bird.
And, they are soooo fast that it's really difficult to take their picture!
I wanted to post about which flowers are in my garden that I've seen these little birds go ga-ga over, so here is a list that you can incorporate into your garden, if you like! I do of course have a feeder, too, and only use a sugar/water mix. (Never use food colouring. It's not required and could be harmful!)
  • Bee Balm (Monarda) 
  • Morning Glory (Ipomoea)
  • Cleome
  • Butterfly Bush
  • Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus)  
  • Lobelia (blue)
  • pink Coral Bells (Heuchera)
  • Scarlet runner beans
  • Agastache
  • Hosta (elegans, "Frances Williams"
  • Crocosmia 'Lucifer'
  • Red-hot poker (Tritoma)
  • Cosmos
  • Linaria purpurea 
  • Hollyhock (Alcea rosea)

Many of these garden flower varieties, (and more!) are available in Wall Flower Studio's Local Harvest store! (click to visit).

Thanks for viewing, and, Happy Gardening!
