Master Gardener Hanging flower baskets are a great way to be surrounded with beautiful color If you plant flow- ers that also attract hummingbirds you can enjoy the color and be entertained all summer long. First you must select flowers that thrive in a hanging basket. Look for nectar-rich tubular blooms. The hummingbirds need to access the nectar easily with their long narrow bills and tongues. Since hummingbirds usually feed while hovering, flowers that protrude or dangle from the plant will provide air space for the bird's beating wings. People often think hummingbirds only respond to the color red. However, they will go to flowers in orange, pink, purple, white and yellow. Hummers also are attract- ed to plants with multiple blooms or clusters of flowers. Plants with a long flowering season will pro- vide both color and nectar for an extended period of time. You may also choose several different plant varieties with staggered bloom times - whether in one basket or several hanging baskets. Hummingbirds do not care about the type of container; you may use pottery, wood, plastic, etc. However, the size of the con- tainer is important. The container should be at least 12 inches in diameter. Smaller pots may be easier to handle, but larger pots hold more plants; keep roots moist longer; are more eye appealing to humans; and look like a buffet table to a humming- bird. Please remember large pots require heavyduty hooks and strong support. When hanging your basket, choose a sheltered location within easy view of a window or area where you can sit and enjoy. Depending on your plant selection, this could be a sunny or shady area. Some common colorful plants that attract hummingbirds. Annuals: Agastache, Begonia, Cuphea, Four O'Clocks, Fuschia, Geramium, Impatience, Lantana, Nasturtium, Nicotiana, Petunia, Phlox, Salvia, Zinnia. Perennials: Bee Balm, Coral Bells, Dwarf Delphinium, Penstemon, Verbena, Veronica. This list is not inclusive and you will find many plants that will attract hummingbirds. I hope you will try a hanging basket this summer and see if you can attract a hummingbird to your yard.
