Attracting Hummingbirds to Your Landscapes
Bring in the hummingbirds and brighten your landscape with colorful plants.
Use perennial vines like honeysuckle and trumpet for years of hummingbird appeal. Or try annuals like cypress vine and scarlet runner beans for quicker cover. Train them on a trellis to improve the view in narrow spaces.
Consider combining annual and perennial vines to quickly cover the support until the perennial vine gets established and starts to bloom. Or plant several equally assertive perennial vines with different bloom times together on the same support to extend your flower display.
A bit more information: Include early bloomers like columbine, bleeding heart, and lungwort (Pulmonaria) to extend the hummingbird season in your landscape. Fall bloomers like bee balm, Rose of Sharon and late blooming hostas will help keep them around in fall.
