Windowbox flowers for hummingbirds?
I have a window planter box hanging under the window of my computer room overlooking my hummingbird feeder. Yesterday, I looked up from the computer and out the window, to see a hummer hovering back and forth, right over the impatiens planted in the windowbox, about 3 feet from where I was sitting. She seemed to be looking right in the window at me. Of course, where's the camera when you need it?
Anyway, the hummer didn't seem that interested in the impatiens. I'm wondering what kind of annuals I might plant in the windowbox next year to be more attractive to the hummingbirds? It's pretty shady with some dapple afternoon sun.
Any of you have experience with windowboxes for attracting hummingbirds?
