Salvia spathacea (Hummingbird sage)

Verbena bonariensis (aka the plant with these gorgeous purple blooms) is ok for bumblebees, but really comes into its own when it comes to butterflies and hummingbird hawkmoths. It self seeds well and you can take cuttings in the autumn so it's the plant that keeps on giving! #homesfornature

Hummingbird Plants

Delphinium - Hummingbirds love delphinium, which blooms in early summer. Height for these perennials can average anywhere from 2 to 8 feet tall, depending on variety. Delphinium requires rich soil, and areas with relatively cool summers.

Red valerian adds a pop of hot pink to any garden. It's easy to grow and is loved by several butterflies, hummingbird hawkmoths and some bumblebees #homesfornature

Flowers to grow for height in the garden, tall plants for flower borders.

Foxgloves are great for adding height to the flower garden and creating a cottage garden look. Beautiful flowers but toxic plant - do not have this where children play.
