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, Scarletbush and Coral bells. Home Depot carries lots of plants for attracting hummingbirds and you can find seeds for annuals on the seed rack. Enjoy your hanging garden.
