Planting Phlox for hummingbirds is a favorite among gardeners.
(This photo is one variety of hummingbird perennials in our garden.)
This easy to grow plant has large captivating bundles of colorful blooms and the loveliest fragrance.
Hummingbirds have a high metabolism and need flowers with an abundant nectar count.This beautiful bloom fits the bill (no pun intended) perfectly.
Your personal locale and the variety you choose will determine when it will bloom and for how long. It doesn’t matter because hummingbirds always enjoy phlox.
Here in Northern Vermont, our garden Phlox bloom in August and September.
This is the time of year our hummingbirds need to bulk up for the
fall migration back to their winter homes in South America and Mexico.
We see them frequenting our flowers all day long. In addition to the feeders we supply, nectar from flowers is also more important for them in the Fall.
