Hummingbirds love Native Firebush Salvia

I have been told that if you plant a firebush, you WILL get hummingbirds. In my garden, 90% of the time I see hummers, they are on the native salvias.

good luck

I am so disappointed that when I first started this venture the nursery sold me a Mexican Firebush instead of the native. The flowers never even open on the bush and nothing goes to it. So be careful which firebush you buy folks, get the Florida native~!

Yes, the native is beautiful, un-beatable in the garden, both for looks and for native wildlife. It has nectar flowers for butterflies and hummingbirds, and berries loved by birds, expecially mockingbirds.
