Hummingbirds migrate according to the weather. I've noticed fewer hummers in my garden this year, too. I'm not sure where they went but I'm sure they'll be back. Perennial plants I have found to attract hummingbirds are Trumpet Vine (Campsis x tagliabuana, I grow 'Madame Galen'), Butterfly Bush (Buddleia davidii), Honeysuckle (Lonicera, many varieties), and, I see them sticking their little beaks in my hanging baskets filled with Fuchsias. They seem to be attracted to bright, vibrant colors, especially red. Sweet fragranced flowers are also a draw. Try planting some of these irresistable perennials in your garden and you're sure to attract them. Enjoy your garden!
