I have fuschia on my front porch. I need something to plant,to attract hummingbirds, in the pots on my deck that gets full sun all day. Is there anything you can sugest? I usually plant trailing petunias but they are not on the list of plants that attract the birds.
Thank you,

If hummingbirds live in your area, you can attract them by planting red, tubular flowers. There are many red-flowered annuals, perennials, vines, and shrubs to choose from and here is a list of some of the plants that most successfully attract hummingbirds: Trumpet honeysuckle, Trumpet-creeper, Cardinal-flower, Scarlet penstemon, Scarlet morning-glory, Cypress vine, Scarlet paintbrush, Scarlet salvia, Bee-balm, Fire pink, Scarlet petunia (yes, they do like petunias), Scarletbush and Coral bells. Best wishes with your front porch garden!
