It was not a hummingbird flower garden specifically planted.............
but "luck" that brought my first hummingbird to our garden.
"Nature creates ability,
Luck provides it
-Francois de la Rochefoucauld
With curiosity, I watched a hummingbird zoom from bloom to bloom not yet understanding how simple attracting more birds would soon become.
Are you also a gardener who would like to attract hummingbirds?
Perhaps you are a back porch gardener who only likes to set out a few pots or hanging baskets of flowers.
Maybe you like to plant vines or trees.
It doesn't matter hummingbirds will come.
Hummingbird vines are expecially enticing.
Here is a little planting advice.
What a marvel it is for me today to watch hummingbirds pollinate my flowers by dipping their bills into each bloom for the nectar.
The pollen clings to their bills and gorgeous iridescent feathers.
As the hummingbirds fly from flower to flower, pollen is transferred.
The pollen fertilizes the flowers and everyone is happy.

Are You Considering a Hummingbird Flower Garden?
If you are considering a hummingbird flower garden visit our Hummingbird Garden Plans page. Here you will find design advice and planning tips to consider for attracting hummingbirds to your garden.
Love Roses! These flowers will attract hummingbirds but do not supply nectar.
Some species build their tiny nests among these beautiful blooms.
Variety is the spice of life!
There are hundreds of varieties of hummingbird plants in North America alone depending on your planting zone.
And even Trees
As pollinators, hummingbirds benefit our natural environment. When
planting a hummingbird flower garden, never use chemical fertilizers or
pesticides. Doing so can harm hummingbirds and the good earth.
We compiled a list of plants preferred by hummingbirds and sorted them for you by zone.
You can follow the USDA hardiness zones as a general guide by selecting the zone that shows the lowest winter temperatures that can occur in your area.
We have put together a page of Hummingbird Flower Planting Zones which will recommend plants for your "hummingbird flower garden" in each particular planting zone. Use the USDA Zone Map and compare the Minimum temperatures of your area to get the zone of your location.
