Was your first hummingbird visit unexpected?

When we moved to Vermont our property had several flowers in an overgrown garden.

That first summer, we began to notice a few of these tiny helicopter type birds making daily visits to some specific flowers and our newly hung flower baskets.


We were intrigued!

These birds were beautiful and we wished for more of them.

At that time, we didn't have any idea how to turn what seemed like a coincidence into a cooperative effort on our part to attract them.

Would you like to intentionally increase the number of hummingbird visits to your garden, deck, or patio?

Over the years, we've learned that one simple way of enticing these birds was to increase the number of flowers planted or displayed.

What are the Best Flowers that Attract Hummingbirds?

You may notice these little glittering birds are frequenting your brightly colored flowers with particular shapes.

We've put together a list of a few of our favorite flowers that attract hummingbirds below.

Foxglove Hummingbird Flower

Hummingbirds have fantastic vision.

They are also very smart and know which flowers are best for them.

Red, orange, pink and purple blooms are favored.

Like bees, they can also assess the amount of nectar in flowers.

They will accept a nectar reserve of 15% but prefer 25% to meet the demands of an exceptionally high metabolism.

Our friendly visitors are enticed by the trumpet shaped flowers and blooms that hang downward, such as the lovely foxglove.

Hummingbird flowers are usually red, orange, pink and purple, often trumpet shaped, sometimes hanging downward.

These blooms add beauty to your garden, deck, or patio while attracting these awe inspiring little birds......the hummingbirds!

Some examples of flowers that will attract hummingbirds are Salvia, Morning Glory, Phlox, Columbine, Bee Balm, Bird of Paradise, Lillies, Trumpet Vine, Cypress Vine, Honeysuckle and many more.
