Butterfly/hummingbird plants for shade? - Knowledgebase Question

Question by rapreisinger

Are there any flowers that attract butterflies or hummingbirds that grow well in shade? Or at least partial shade? We have very few spots in our yard that get full sun.

I'm afraid the plants most attractive to hummers and butterflies grow best in full sun or at the very least half-day sun. I don't know exactly how much sun your garden gets so I'm not sure what to suggest. However, Oregon State University has a publication listing the best plants and their cultural requirements. I hope it will be helpful to you: http://extension.oregonstate.e...
