Top 10 Hummingbird Flowers and Plants

We have a great plant recommendation in every color. Take a look at these nectar-rich hummingbird flowers and plants in a rainbow of gorgeous colors.

If you know anything about hummingbirds, it’s probably the fact that they can’t resist red. After all, there’s a reason hummer fans fill their gardens with crimson blooms and hang sugar-water feeders splashed with scarlet. But red isn’t the only hue that attracts them. Take a look at these nectar-rich hummingbird flowers in a rainbow of gorgeous colors (including one outstanding red choice). You might just find a new favorite!

Orange - Red hot poker

Kniphofia, Zones 5 to 9
It’s one of the most dramatic and visually appealing flowers in the garden, pale yellow at the base and bold orange on top. Some varieties, like the First Sunrise cultivar pictured here, have an extra jolt of orange. The plants grow up to 4 feet high and are among the earlier summer bloomers.

Bonus tip: You really want to plant these in well-draining soil. They’re prone to rot in boggy or even moist soil.
