    better homes and gardens have pre planed gardens with a plant list...I believe there is a buttery garden and possibly the hummer garden as well. I’m being held down by 2 cats at the moment....I’ll let you google it.

    Check to see what your planting zone is and then google something that grows well in your area.

    Red blooms of any kind attract the hummingbirds. We get many of them in our petunias and roses, but you would attract even more with a humming bird feeder or two. Do not put red dye in the feeder, however, as it can kill them. Use clear liquid and use a hummingbird feeder that has faux red flowers where they feed to attract them to the feeder. They will return year after year.

    A butterfly bush (if available in your area) does what you want. We had a whole hedge here in SE Washington. However they will grow like crazy and needs to be severely trimmed each year. You can whack it down to within a foot of the ground in the fall and it will be well above your head by summer.
