  Plants That Attract Hummingbirds
Hummingbirds are special little birds. They dart and hover, zipping sideways, backwards, up and down. Their beauty and agility fascinate us and bring action to the garden. Hummingbirds need high-energy fuel and they get it from the nectar that certain flowers produce. In return, hummingbirds transfer pollen from the male part of a flower (the stamens) to the female part (the pistil) of a different flower. Flowers that are especially adapted for hummingbird pollination are long and tube-shaped and often red.
