The Best Flowers that attract hummingbirds have a high nectar count, which is the most important property of any hummingbird attracting plant. They are usually red or brightly colored and often trumpet shaped. The high volume of nectar in the blooms of vines, shrubs, perennials, trees and annuals will be sure to attract hummingbirds.
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.
You may notice these little glittering birds are frequenting your brightly colored flowers with particular shapes.
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.

A Nature Hills customer review:
"I ordered plants from Nature Hills 5 or 6 different times this spring and I was extremely happy with all the plants. They arrived very well packaged and in excellent condition. Nature Hills is my favorite of the 4 nurseries I ordered from this spring. The plants were often higher priced than other nurseries, but the plants were very large. They were also packaged better than the other nurseries. I'm willing to pay a little more for better quality.(Although the prices was sometimes higher, there was often a discount code or free shipping.)" - Paula S.

Blue Chiffon Rose of Sharon Tree
Blue is such a rare color in the garden. Enjoy this long-lasting display of one of nature's true wonders.
We've taken a valuable shrub from the time-tested Proven Winners® line. Then, we carefully created a lovely, ornamental tree form plant.
By the time your Blue Chiffon® Rose of Sharon Tree Form (Hibiscus syriacus 'Notwoodthree' PP20,574) arrives at your doorstep, it will have already received many years of expert care. This ornamental Hibiscus shrub has been trained into a tree form.
Ethereal blue-toned flowers absolutely cover this pretty tree form plant for months! Gorgeous, single blue flowers feature soft, fluffy centers for an exquisite display. What a showpiece for your landscape from midsummer through fall.
Go ahead and use these "attention-grabbers" as a unique accent. Each of these single-stem, tree form plants will draw the eye.
How amazing to have this best-selling shrub from Proven Winners turned into an incredible tree for your own yard. You'll be thrilled to see it, resplendent with large, frilled blue blooms.
Use one or many to create the lush landscape you crave.
You'll never worry about seedlings. The flower factories on this Proven Winners plant simply don't produce very many viable seeds. Very few seeds...very few hassles.
The showy, ruffled, blue blooms are held nearly flat and feature a bouncy, lacy center. These anemone-like blooms beacon you to reach out and touch its silky petals.
Of course, the blooms also entice jewel-toned hummingbirds and butterflies to visit its nectar. They'll only add to your already spectacular display!BUY Blue Chiffon Rose of Sharon Tree
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.
