With a little garden savvy, you can attract hummingbirds to any landscape, from formal knot gardens to rustic woodland trails. Balance style and function by focusing on plants that meet design needs first, then narrow down selections to those rich with nectar. In this sunny combination, shrubs provide structure and sugary blooms. Shining Sensation™ Weigela dresses the summer garden in hot-pink trumpets, while Ultra Violet™ Buddleia dazzles in purple. The analogous color scheme pulls blue into the mix with Indigo Frost™ Agapanthus. Tuck masses of Ragin’ Cajun® Ruellia around the planting, hummingbirds can’t resist the color red. Add floriferous perennials like Bells of Fire™ Tecoma and Love and Wishes™ Salvia and watch the hummingbirds swoon.
