Ok... got out my reading glasses :-)

The hummingbird mix is a commercial mix bought in bulk and I have enough of it to last me for years! I did have a hummingbird stay the summer last year (first one in this location) although I suspect she kinda liked the honeysuckle rather then staying for the mix.

Common names so I don't have to spell out the long words :-) Cornlower, cosmos, larkspur, delphinium, purple coneflower, four o'clock, lemon mint, love in a mist, poppy, salvia, african marigold, crimson clover, nasturtium, zinnia, and a rather interesting sounding 'cow cockle'.

There aren't very many larger seeds in the mix, so I'm guessing you won't see any four o'clocks or anything that has big seeds. They were kind of fun to raise. I winter sowed some big pots and just left the mixed flowers in the pots all summer. They brightened up the patio a bit!
