How to Use Shrubs and Bushes to Attract Hummingbirds

Choose native shrubs like trumpet vine and weigela to provide nectar for hummingbirds. Plant in clusters for visibility and create a hummingbird-friendly habitat.

Select bushes with tubular flowers such as fuchsia and salvia. These blooms are rich in nectar and attract hummingbirds with their vibrant colors and shapes.

Create a diverse landscape with shrubs and bushes that bloom at different times. This ensures a continuous food source for hummingbirds throughout the seasons.

Prune shrubs and bushes regularly to maintain their shape and health. Remove dead flowers to encourage new growth and keep the nectar flowing for hummingbirds.

Provide a water source near your shrubs and bushes. Hummingbirds need to stay hydrated, especially during hot weather. A birdbath or small fountain will attract them.

Enhance your garden with feeders and perches to complement the shrubs and bushes. Watch as hummingbirds visit your garden, drawn by the natural beauty and abundance of nectar.
