Attract Hummingbirds with a Full Season of Flowers

Bring the hummingbirds into your garden and keep them happy with a season-long supply of their favorite nectar plants.

Early blooming lungwort is a shade tolerant perennial that provides some of the earliest nectar for these winged beauties.

The bell-shaped flowers of the vigorous Virginia bluebells provide a sea of blue in the spring garden and nectar for both butterflies and hummingbirds. 

Our native, non-invasive honeysuckle vines can be used to cover trellis and archways. These repeat blooming vines provide colorful flowers and a source of nectar throughout the season.

Place a pot or two of Black & Blue salvia near your windows, so you can enjoy the frequent visits of your resident hummingbirds.

And include some summer and fall bloomers like bee balm. These plants produce nectar rich flowers, providing late season food to help the hummingbirds on their long fall migration.

A bit more information: Create a hummingbird-friendly environment in your backyard. Include their favorite plants, water, and bugs to eat. Provide sheltered perching spots in shade where they can rest and open sunny areas for flight.
