I'd like some suggestions for hummingbird plants. We found out that salvia greggi does a pretty good job, and trumpet vine (but I'm wary to plant it). Otherwise, we'd love more ideas. We live in the Houston area.
There are quite a number of good hummer attracting plants you can grow in the Houston area. I'd stick with natives and well adapted plants. Here's a few suggestions;
Anisacanthus wrightii (Flame acanthus) - sun
Hamelia patens (Firebush) - sun
Malvaviscus drummondii (Turk's cap) - part shade/shade
Justicia brandegeana (shrimp plant) - part shade/sun
Cuphea 'David Verity' (cigar plant) - sun
Locinera sempervirens (coral honeysuckle)- sun/part shade
Many salvias -- S. coccinea, S. guaranitica, S. darcyi, S. leucantha, etc.
There are many more, but I'd recommend going to a good well stocked nursery and inquire about hummer plants that grow well in your area.
