hummingbirds

Asked January 25, 2013, 2:47 PM EST

I live in Oregon City and have a somewhat productive garden. I wanted to plant flowers to attract hummingbirds. Do you have a couple you could recommend?

OSU's publication ec1541 is just the thing: "Attract Hummingbirds to Your Garden" at http://extension.oregonstate.edu/catalog/pdf/ec/ec1541.pdf. Here is a shorter article: "Fueling the high-energy hummingbird" at http://extension.oregonstate.edu/gardening/fueling-high-energy-hummingbird. You'll easily find lists of flowers hummingbirds like. My two favorite are hardy fuchsias and Ribes sanguineum (flowering currant).
