It is easy to attract the hummingbirds when you add the hanging baskets which are filled with flowers that attract hummingbirds into your yard. The hummingbirds are normally attracted to the followers that protrude or dangle away of the plant. The flowers should also have tubular and accessible blooms. Even if the hummingbirds can spot better the red blooms from a distance. You can plant nectar rich flowers since they attract them and you can use the garden fence paint that can enhance this attraction.
Ivy geranium is a plant which is tough and it can survive even the periods of drought or neglect. The plant comes with attractive foliage and it can cascade happily on the side of the hanging container. It has sweet nectar with bright blooms in the color that ranges from the pink to the salmon or to red and this attracts the hummingbirds in early summer to autumn. The plant should be in the place where it is exposed to the sunlight during morning hours and to the shade during afternoons. Lantana is also one of the flowers that attract hummingbirds and it produces waxy foliage. The flowers can be in the shade of pink, orange, violet, yellow and red. It is a tall plant that can reach to over 6 feet when it matures. One clump can have the blooms of different colors at once and this can make good dried flower arrangements.
Wave petunia may trail to over 4 feet and it is the ideal plant to use in the hanging container. Its vivid violet, white and pink flowers can attract the hummingbirds and it has four inches wide with a trumpet shaped like that of angel trumpet flower. When the plant is put in the full sunlight, it can bloom in early summer to the mid autumn without too much attention. You can keep the soil moist during dry or hot weather.
