There are several options for attracting hummingbirds. Try to combine species that bloom in different months and adapted to the climate of your region. When forming a garden, plant the lower flowers at the front and the taller ones at the back, so that they are all visible. "To start a garden facing the hummingbirds, plant Brown shrimp around the trees and in the bibs; Yellow shrimp in the flower beds; Japanese lantern or Princess Earrings in hanging vases; Asistásias e Teo de Cristo pink Around the coconut palms, Asistásias around Arecas and use Dwarf Grevilea as a hedge, "suggests Christian.

TREPADEIRAS: Pink Teardrop and Red Clerodendro.

FLORIDA TREES : Espatódea, Cowweed, Mulungu, Swain, Dombéia, Jacaranda, Paineira, Ipê and Flamboiã.
