First you must select flowers that thrive in a hanging basket. Look for nectar-rich tubular blooms. The hummingbirds need to access the nectar easily with their long narrow bills and tongues. Since hummingbirds usually feed while hovering, flowers that protrude or dangle from the plant will provide air space for the bird’s beating wings. People often think hummingbirds only respond to the color red. However, they will go to flowers in orange, pink, purple, white and yellow. Hummers also are attracted to plants with multiple blooms or clusters of flowers. Plants with a long flowering season will provide both color and nectar for an extended period of time. You may also choose several different plant varieties with staggered bloom times – whether in one basket or several hanging baskets.
