In my garden the hummingbirds are especially attracted to flowers or florets with a funnel shape, such as trumpet vine, morning glory, and petunia. They also like lantana, nicotiana, and nasturtiums. The color seems to be less important than the shape, but red salvia is also popular. Practically any trailing plant with bright or funnel shaped flowers should attract them.
