It has been many years since we have maintained a sugar water hummingbird feeder. Why bother when we can grow them.
One male and one female were present most of the summer. The first day a youngster started showing up was the last day we saw the male.
Salvias are our mainstays. Many of our varieties bloom from late spring till frost.
A few wait until September to start blooming.
Many over winter in our root cellar. Others I root cuttings.
Tubular flowers seem attract the most attention.
