When I added a couple of plants to the garden this fall I realized that most of them had red blooms or berries.
I prefer cooler colors like pink and blues, however lately I seem to be trending towards red. Maybe because it is the color hummingbirds prefer.
This pigeonberry plant was added in a shady spot in our garden. Love the bright and shiny red berries. The birds had picked off all the berries within 24 hours of planting it. At first I was disappointed, however my husband pointed out that was the reason I picked this plant in the first place. Point taken!
This plant is very hardy, a great ground cover and provides fall color. The little red berries are prized by birds including mockingbirds and doves.
Three Turk's caps were added in the back garden. The migrating hummingbirds had found these plants within 5 minutes and were fighting over them.
This Firebush was added for the hummingbirds as well.
