Good Morning!!

We live in the SE part of Michigan and rebuilding a Annual and Prennial bed. We are looking for some colorful annuals that could be 18 to 24 inches tall or even taller to bring in the Hummers.

Please give us some ideas.

Thanks Think SPRING!!!!!

Salvia coccinea 'Lady in Red' is a fast growing annual that prefers full sun and dry soil (watering makes it floppy) with bright red tubular flowers that hummers love. No deadheading required, and it blooms like crazy until frost.

Hi Lary,
Hummers will also be attracted to impatiens, glads, and cleomes. Just try to buy them in the red/orange tones that hummers prefer.
