question for Wisconsin folks
I live in SE wisconsin ( Milwaukee County) and I see hummingbirds around my home from time to time. I would like to see more so within the next few years I'd like to make a garden for them.
I have some flowers in my yard that supposedly attract them. Maltese cross, garden phlox, and some purple columbine. The few times I've seen hummers I didn' t see them feeding from any of my flowers though. They just seemed to be passing through. My feeders have seen very little use at all within the last couple years I've been living here. I just got a hummzinger a couple of weeks ago for my birthday which remains unused.
What sort of perennial flowers have you had luck with here in Wisconsin? I am looking for ideas for my garden.
