Best Plants to Attract Hummingbirds

Who doesn’t love beautiful flowers, plants, and shrubs? They can be both pleasing to the eye and also help keep the birds (like the hummingbirds) fed and well. While this may not appeal to some, to many watching hummingbirds flit around gives a sense of joy! Make sure that if you’re working with a professional landscape designer that you mention to them if you are one of those people! Landscaping can have many functional benefits such as privacy, curb appeal, and more but it’s important for it to make you happy as well!

For the planting zone that our St. Louis metro area falls in (Zone 6), some of the best plants to attract hummingbirds are:

Bee Balm

Salvia

Lobelia (Cardinal Flower)

Coral Honeysuckle

Wild Columbine

Weigela

Cosmos

Knockout Roses

Hummingbird Petunia

Trumpet Vine

Begonia

Lilac

Butterfly Bush

Daylily

Clematis

Mimosa Tree

Phlox

Coral Bells

Dianthus

Hosta

The list continues on and on. If you’re not working with a professional landscape designer, make sure that you do proper research on which plants will work best for your soil type and the amount of sun or shade the area will have. If you’re looking for a beautiful landscape without having to worry about doing it yourself, our team at Envisioning Green would be happy to help!
