By doing some planning and selecting nectar-producing plants with flowers in the shape and color that hummingbirds enjoy, you can create a beautiful garden patch full of colorful flowers and hummingbirds.
You don't need a large area to create a hummingbird garden, even a small sunny patio will do. You just need to concentrate on providing lots of plants that will continue to bloom throughout the warm weather.
Hummingbirds are attracted to brightly colored flowers (reds in particular) with tubular shaped blooms. See our suggestions for some good plants to get started with.
