I need help in choosing flowers & bushes for a yard that is surrounded by woods. I would like to attract butterflies & hummingbirds, along with possibly feeding birds (naturally) in the winter months but still have some color. I have plenty of green but would also like to include white & pastels,and I really don't like pink. Can you help me?
