I have this plant in my Texas garden and it attracts so many hummingbirds and butterflies, and bumble bees. I just love it's light and airy growth habit. It is very fast to grow here. I have dug up several new plants that sprouted close to the mother plant and shared with friends and family. If you like to attract all the critter listed, get yourself a Mexican Bird of Paradise.
