Attracting hummingbirds

If you haven’t already seen hummingbirds in your yard, you soon should.

Hummingbirds grace Southeast Texans with their presence a couple of times a year as they migrate.

Spring migration brings them our way from March through May as they head north. In mid-July, those headed south start coming through, steadily building in numbers through September.
If you want to provide food sources, plant salvia, bee balm, hibiscus, butterfly bush, columbine, flowering quince, lantana, cigar plant, coral vine and pentas.

Is there a plant in your garden that never fails to attract the tiny creatures?
