white flowers for hummers?

tastefullyjulie(Lewiston, NY 6)May 8, 2006

I'm trying my first attempt to get some hummers this year. I have the feeder hanging but was checking out some flowers to plant. I realized I have some beard tongue I can divide but it's the husker red with white flowers. Do they like that?

Really? I didn't know they'd go for white tubular flowers. Do they like white nicotiana, or white heliotrope?

Thanks for the tip!

They have used my Nicotiana sylvestris in the past. Not much because the tube is so long but they will use it. They have also used my white flowering hostas on occasion.

Two years ago, I had one that loved my white Jacob's Ladder and a white Coral Bell.
