A hummingbird garden can be as simple as a flower box or several containers on a deck, or as elaborate as a large perennial border. The height of the plants chosen is important to vary the space around blooms, allowing the hummingbirds to hover. The goal is to have some flowers in bloom at all times. Remember that hummingbirds like many types of flowers, not just red tubular ones, and that there are other flowers that attract insects, which are an essential part of their diet. Since hummingbirds are very territorial around their favorite flowers, be sure to place a few in different areas of the garden. This will make it more difficult for one bird to claim all of the flowers and enable other hummingbirds to visit and feed.
