Plant Red Flowers for the Hummingbirds
By Horntoad on January 1, 2012
Hummingbirds are highly attracted to the color red, which is why their feeders usually have red on them. See how many ways you can add red to your garden. Plant red flowers and paint a bird house or feeder red. How about painting flower pots red and using red in your garden art? Even wearing red clothing when working in the yard will attract them. The more red you can use, the better chance of catching the attention of a passing hummer.
