Yes, Yes the hummers are here in my midwest garden! Thanks for the great article. Check out my favorite attractors: Iochroma cyaneum 'Purple Queen', Cuphea 'David Verity', Candy Corn Vine Maniettia inflata, Salvia 'Faye Chapel, and black and blue salvia. Here is more information I have to share on gardening for hummingbirds...enjoy!

Oooo thanks!

I planted a candy corn vine but it did not bloom much this year. I think I put it in too much shade. Definitely going to try the David Verity next year.

Favorites right now seem to be the Tithonia 'Torch', Agastache 'Desert Sunrise', Zinnias and Salvia coccinea 'Lady in Red'. I've also seen them show an interest in the obedient plant, coleus and sweet pea vine.

Boy, I can't wait until the dya they are here all summer!
