Flowers that will Attract Birds to your Bird Garden
By: Petey & Petunia
You should make your bird garden to be visually attractive to
you, bird's aren't really turned on by visuals like humans are,
but birds are attracted to a natural look and feel.
Also remember that various flowers and plants attract varying
species of birds. Some flowers and plants are annual and will
need to be replanted every year, perennial plants come up on
own every year without needing to be replanted.
Flowers and plants are good nesting sites for some birds,
nectar rich flowers are great for feeding some birds.
Some easy-to-grow bird-favorites are cosmos, impatiens, marigold
and zinnia. Birds love sunflowers!
Some other garden flowers that birds love for their seeds are
snapdragon, aster, and larkspur.

Plant these Flowers to Attract Hummingbirds
Grow substantial groups of red, trumpet-shaped flowers such as
bleeding hearts, crimson columbine, scarlet creeper, any red
penstemon, bee balm, Indian paintbrush or cardinal flower.
Also use flowering plants, including shrubs, vines and trees. Azaleas
and flowering quince are two shrubs attractive to hummingbirds,
and honeysuckle and trumpet creeper are favorite vines. A red
buckeye or a flowering crab tree could be good choices for new
trees. Among popular flowers are bee balm, columbine, fuchsias,
lantana and scarlet sage.
