Flowers for Hummingbirds

All birds require three things to lead healthy, happy lives - food, water and shelter. Hummingbirds require something else, flowers. Even if you offer multiple hummingbird feeders (almost a necessity since the little darlings love to chase each other so much!), these birds still derive a large portion of their diet from sucrose found in flowers. You can use this knowlodge to your advantage by creating a hummingbird haven in your yard. Flowers, feeders and insects (we recommend that you practice organic gardening methods in your yard so you don't destroy the small insects hummingbirds require for protein) in one spot, what else would a hummer need?

I have included a list of flowers, shrubs and vines that work well throughout the year for your hungry birds.
