Create a Hummingbird-Friendly Plant Combo

As you plan your hummingbird flower mix, consider these four growing tips: 1. Success depends on annuals. Long-blooming annuals provide nectar for hummingbirds after spring migration or before fall migration.

2. Keep blooming. When you remove spent blooms to make room for new ones, plants last longer. So the nectar banquet lasts longer. Hummingbirds love it!

3. Give bold colors they love! They like red because their eyes perceive it well. But kids also detect orange and yellow colors.

4. Create a stadium-style landscape. Shorter plants should be front-row and taller ones back. Visiting hummingbirds can easily access all blossoms. Plus, you'll see them zigzag and zag amid the flowers better.
