How to Attract Hummingbirds to the Yard

Hummingbirds are welcome visitors to many gardens, but can be challenging to attract.  Here are 11 plant recommendations and strategies to invite these beautifully vibrant visitors into your garden:

Plants: Birds have naturally fast metabolisms so plants that produce many flowers will make the trip worth it for hummingbirds because the food supply will be large enough to feed them.  Plants with long tubular flowers and within the red color range are especially prized by hummingbirds. Excellent plant choices include the California Fuschia and the Hummingbird Sage. Other plants that are favored by hummingbirds are:

  • Coral Bells
  • Monkeyflower
  • Coyote Mint
  • Bush Snapdragon
  • Penstemon
  • Cleveland, Autumn and Summer Sage
  • Baja Fairy Duster
  • Wooly Blue Curls
  • For a vine, try native honeysuckle

Water:  A bird bath or small source of trickling water will make your yard a complete habitat for hummingbirds!  

Expect to see some hummingbirds visiting your garden soon!
