Herbs That Attract Hummingbirds
Herbs have gourmet fragrance hummingbirds love, too. If you enjoy having fast fliers around your patio, deck or garden, make them welcome with a few strong scents and colors they'll appreciate.
Hummingbirds aren't noted for their sense of smell, so the stronger the herb scent is, the better they'll like it.
You can attract them with:
- pineapple sage
- cat mint
- common culinary sage (Salvia officinalis)
- bee balm
- globe thistle
- shasta daisy
- sweet alyssum
- clove pink
- trumpet vine
Although you may find hummingbirds in most U.S. states, they are seasonal and only occasional in some areas. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Office (it's free) for more information about humming birds specific to your area.
