Attract Hummingbirds with Flower-filled Hanging Baskets
Help attract hummingbirds to your feeders with a few flower-filled hanging baskets.
Petunias are another favorite of hummingbirds. Many of the new varieties require much less deadheading than those of the past.
Another longtime favorite, geranium, will help attract hummingbirds to your garden. The trailing ivy geranium is less heat tolerant and benefits from some afternoon shade.
Bidens and lantana have lovely flowers and are very heat tolerant, attract hummingbirds and look good in hanging baskets.
Use fuchsias, begonias and impatiens for those shady spots in the landscape.
A bit more information: Include hummingbird favorites in nearby containers and gardens. Black & Blue salvia, Verbena bonariensis, Blue Horizon ageratum and cardinal vine are just a few of their favorites.
