Butterfly & Hummingbird Attracting Plants

If you are looking for a plant that attracts butterflies or hummingbirds, this list is for you! These heavily fragrant and pollinated plants are known for attracting all sorts of fairies of the garden. Hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies are important placeholders in the garden, fluttering from flower to flower and cross pollinating those flowers that the wind has not. Cross pollination is important in a healthy, colorful garden so providing a home for these small creatures is equally important. Hummingbirds are known to be attracted to the color red, so supplying a nice selection of deep red, nectar rich blooms is key for hummingbird attraction. Furthermore, both hummingbirds and butterflies can be attracted to rotting fruit and even animal waste, so a mixture of fruit bearing plants and fragrant fertilizer can help the population of these creatures in your garden.
