They are a favorite treat for hummingbirds and bloom in the mid-summer months. Honeysuckle vines are also another one of their favorite nectar-filled plants. These ground cover and climbers are another favorite for butterflies too. Another good reason to choose these vining plants is they bloom many times throughout the summer months. Last but certainly not least favorite plant to attract hummingbirds is the Jewelweed plant. Where there's jewelweed in bloom there is sure to be a flock of these birds nearby fighting for the next taste of nectar in the plant.
Hummingbird Plants Benefits in Landscaping
Looking to landscape your yard and add some excitement? Why not include hummingbird plants! These plants have many benefits, both for you and the environment. This article will highlight some benefits of using hummingbird plants in your landscaping.
1) Requires little water for maintenance
Hummingbird plants have shallow water requirements. This means a unique sprinkler system will not be necessary for maintenance. If you use a sprinkler system in your garden, it can often be set to only function during the day, and the hoses can easily be turned off at night.
2) Great for attracting wildlife
Several beautiful birds live in the Eastern United States and Canada that love hummingbird plants. These beautiful birds come to these plants looking for food and shelter. Would you like to have hummingbirds and other bird species in your yard? Plant a few and watch them fly right over. A great benefit of these plants is that they attract more than just birds. Hummingbird plants are also food for bees, wasps, and butterflies.
3) Colors of the blooms
Hummingbird plants can be red, orange, pink, or yellow. The brilliant flowers of hummingbird plants can be seen from far away, adding some excitement to your yard.
4) Can be grown in small spaces
Hummingbird plants are easy to grow because they require less water and space. This means you can grow them in containers on your patio or even in your backyard.
5) Requires little fertilizing
Hummingbird plants only require a little bit of fertilizer spread out every couple of weeks. Fertilizing is essential to keep a healthy plant, but this can be done at the last minute or during the day when it's not raining.
7) Attracts a variety of pollinating insects
Hummingbird plants include a wide variety of different types of insects. These insects are critical in pollinating flowers, so all flowers have nectar that is attractive to them. Hummingbirds and other birds will also feed on these flowers, ensuring the majority of the nectar reaches the ground, where it will provide food for many kinds of creatures, including their insect friends.
Did you know that the hummingbird is America's favorite bird? These little birds are so fascinating to watch as they zip around from flower to flower. The hummingbird is so drawn to flowers that it has a specific favorite plant! Believe it or not, this plant is the trumpet vine. If you want to attract more hummingbirds to your yard, consider planting some trumpet vines!
Hummingbirds are attracted to trumpet vines because these plants provide them with a source of nectar. The hummingbirds can lick the nectar right off the flower tube instead of drinking it from a small birdbath or hummingbird feeder. The hummingbirds will come back regularly to feed on the flowers in this way, and they do so while they wait for their sweet reward!

Helping hummingbirds flourish in your backyard is only a matter of time and patience. When choosing plants for hummingbird gardens, look for those that can be grown indoors (even though you will not see them). The hummingbird flower is exceptionally high in nectar and blooms year-round. Hummingbirds can't resist these flowers, which means they won't want to drink from your birdbath or hummingbird feeders! The red flowers are so beautiful that you should try planting them in pots outside if you live in a mild climate.
Hummingbirds are beautiful creatures. These birds can mimic other birds, which is their most noted skill. To do this, they have pretty unique color-changing abilities. When they hover over the trumpet vine flowers, they resemble a small and delicate flower themselves. Your hummingbird garden will look fantastic covered in these delicate flowers! You can also enjoy the wild beauty of these flowers by planting them outdoors in your yard.
