The best wildflowers to attract hummingbirds

It’s no secret here at Keystone Wildflower that we love hummingbirds. There is something magical about watching the tiny, dramatic creatures hover and flit about from plant to plant dressed in magnificent, iridescent plumage.

Hummingbirds prefer native plant nectar with high sugar content. Usually the plants pollinated by hummingbirds produce flowers in shades of red, orange and bright pink, but hummingbirds accept nectar from all ranges of colored plants. So, which native plants are the best to attract hummingbirds? We compiled a short list of a few of our favorites:

  1. Wild Columbine
  2. Monarda
  3. Beardtongue
