Wondering which flower varieties to plant to get your garden humming? Here are our Grumpy’s top picks.
Hummingbirds are looking for something a little different in a flower. Their long, narrow beak is designed to reach deep into the necks of tubular flowers, such as Lydia™ and Bells of Fire™ Tecoma. But you may be surprised at the smaller flowers on which the birds feed. The necks of Saucy™ Wine and Saucy™ Red Salvias are not too tight for hummingbirds to penetrate, nor are those of Ragin’ Cajun™ Ruellia. You will also find them hovering among the blossoms on your Shining Sensation™ Weigelas.
