Hummingbird Plant Picture Gallery

We love hummingbirds, and they love us back with lots of visits. That's because our gardens are abundant in tubular-shaped, nectar-rich hummingbird garden plants -- especially Salvias (true sages) and companion plants. Almost any sage attracts hummingbirds. However, this list is based on our best hummingbird flowers -- the ones hummers swarm in our garden and sneak into our greenhouses to visit.

True sages are mint family plants (Lamiaceae). You'll find a wide range of abundantly flowering sage plants here, especially ones from the Western Hemisphere. Over the years, we have noticed that hummingbirds seem to prefer mint-family plants from the West. This makes sense considering that native animals prefer native flora. Hummingbirds, sometimes called "flying jewels," don't live in the Eastern Hemisphere.

Plants and pollinators in a region coevolve to meet each other's needs. For example, the tube-shaped flowers of North and Central American Lamiaceae fit the beaks of hummingbirds living in those areas whereas some South American sages with longer blossoms require Southern Hemisphere hummingbirds with super-long beaks.

North or South, hummingbirds prefer mint family plants due to their rich nectar and the insects they attract, which provide protein. Please keep in mind that many sages not listed here also attract and nourish hummers.
