The Q&A Archives: What is red and heat tolerant?

Question: I'm looking for a red flower to go in a pot on my deck which is on the west side of my midwestern home. I like Vinca but it's not red (for hummingbirds).

Answer: Some plants suitable for containers that attract hummingbirds include Beard Tongue (and other penstemons), Firespike, Fuchsia, Impatiens, Jacobiana, Jewelweed,
Petunia, Various Salvia species and Shrimp Plant. Some have reddish orange or red flowers. Best wishes with your garden!
