This list is a mix of bushes and shrubs, perennials and annuals, all favored by hummingbirds.

Happy gardening!


  1. I find they are also attracted to the native cardinal flower here that has loads of small red trumpet shaped flowers.
    Your photos are excellent.

  2. My first nasturtium is coming up from a seed I planted in a square foot/raised garden bed. Your nasturtium is pretty. All of the flowers in your photos are gorgeous! I'm trying to grow an organic garden. The tomato plants are doing great, but the square foot garden is quite slow with all the wind and chilly nights we've had. I'm your new follower and look forward to reading more about your organic gardening and flowers.


Thank you!
