Plants my hummingbirds love

We are fortunate to have two species of hummingbirds in my neighborhood: the resident Anna’s and the migrant Rufous hummingbird. Rufous arrives in early May and departs in August. They could already be gone as I have not seen one this week. When I plan my garden I always consider plants that hummingbirds can use for nectar even though I do fill feeders. I find they use both sources during summer. Here are eight of my hummingbird garden plants in bloom now.
