Hummingbird Garden

Calliope Hummingbird in a flower garden

Create your own hummingbird garden by adding the below hummingbird flowers, vines, shrubs and trees that will attract hummingbirds.

Besides flowering plants and shrubs, you may also want to provide a water fountain or bird bath which will enhance and increase the attraction factor to hummingbirds to your garden.

Hummingbirds do not need nor prefer a deep bath. Even light misters are very welcoming to the little birds that will delight in flying through the spray for a quick bath.

They will also drink the droplets that form on any of the petals and foliage of the garden plants.
