Hummingbirds need fresh water every day and like to dine on tubular-shaped flowers that match their long beak. Mostly attracted to red, their eyes also notice pink and orange. Similar to other nectar sippers large masses of flowers of one color and a large variety of different flowers are a favorite in the garden. Here are some of my favorites that are relatively easy to grow.

The edible California fuchsia, Zauschneria latifolia,  Mexican honeysuckle, Justicia spicigera,  Penstemon varieties,  Sages,  Honeysuckle varieties,  Butterfly bush, Hibiscus
