I'm getting rid of some butterfly attractors and adding hummer plants in my garden beds. I have tons of annuals in pots, so what I would like is for you to list your top performing PERENNIAL garden bed hummer attractors, for Zone 6b-7a.

I have full shade to full sun to work with, so...

Give me your top 5 flowers, top 3 shrubs, top 2 small trees (30' and under) and top 5 SPRING plants as well.

Thanks in advance,
SpaceMan
