Flowers, perches, insects, and water are the keys to creating a garden that welcomes hummingbirds. Nectar makes up 90% of a hummingbird's diet, so it is important to fill your yard with native flowering plants rich in nectar like honeysuckle and bee balm. You can also add a hummingbird feeder to your yard and fill it with homemade hummingbird nectar!
Providing a shallow dish of water and minimizing the use of pesticides also positions your yard as a one-stop shop for hummingbirds and other pollinators.
Below is a selection of flowers that hummingbirds are especially drawn to, many of which we carry in our stores. Click on the images of the flowers to see available varieties!
