Bring in the hummingbirds and brighten your landscape with colorful plants.

Hedges of weigela provide shelter for birds and the funnelform flowers are filled with nectar for both hummingbirds and butterflies to enjoy.

A honeysuckle vine climbs on a trellis and surrounds this rustic birdhouse.  The season long flowers of this honeysuckle will help attract hummingbirds to the yard.

The versatile daylily provides colorful blooms and nectar for the hummingbirds in both sun and shade. 

Bee balm adds color to the summer garden with its flowers and hummingbird appeal.  Look for powdery mildew resistant varieties or plant them amongst other tall plants to hide any discolored foliage that may occur.

This trumpet vine is about to burst into bloom.  Here the vigorous grower is being trained into a small tree while just around the corner another one climbs over a homemade trellis and partnered with clematis.
