It's always a thrill to see a hummingbird in the garden!
Hummingbirds visit my garden from March through September. It is easy to attract them to your yard. Just grow a variety of plants with brightly colored flowers. It's a good idea to use several kinds of plants that bloom at different times to provide flowers throughout the growing season. Tubular flowers usually contain large amounts of nectar for the hummingbirds to sip.
These plants are easy to grow in North Florida, and are definitely hummingbird magnets!
