Plant Cardinal Flowers to attract Hummingbirds.


A short-lived perennial that rarely endures beyond four or five years, cardinal flower readily reseeds, so if situated in the right spot in your garden it should ensure a steady supply of new plants for many years. Cardinal Flower is usually found in lists of essential plants for attracting hummers.

    @Dan330 Dan they really do love this plant I found this out to be very true when My sister purchased one from Homedepot last week and before she knew it hummingbirds appeared out of no where! Now she wished she had purchased more.... I pass on the good news about their habit to re-seed... My sister will love this tip....Thanks for sharing..
