Ooops! Red Canadian columbine
Sorry, I goofed. Columbine is what I meant to say.
I've read that red columbine is a rich nectar source, equivalent to sugar at 2:1. It's said to attract hummingbirds. Mine is just starting to bloom, but I can't see it from the house.
Anyone else have this? And if so, do the hummers like it? Also, what about the other columbines? Are they as good?
I'm thinking about planting it everywhere there's a bare spot in front of a window. I planted a lot of Monarda this year, but they don't bloom til July. I need something hummers want in my front windows for May and June.
What do you think?
Also, what about heuchera? Has anyone seen hummers visiting this?
