Daylilies are very easy-to-grow perennials that attract hummingbirds to your garden.
They used to have a fairly limited range of colors consisting mostly of shades of yellow.
However since their popularity has grown, plant breeders have put a lot of time into producing more color options. Which makes it much easier to find a shade that will go with your garden’s color scheme. And keep the hummers happy at the same time!

There are a few advantages for growing bushes that attract hummingbirds.
First it is safer for the birds since predators (such as the neighborhood cat) will have a harder time reaching them.
Second, since they will be flying closer to your eye level, it will be easier for you to see them.
Third, the thin branches of the bushes can also act as perches for the hummingbirds when they need to take a rest.
All of the bushes in this list are also beautiful in their own right, so I would have them in my garden even if I weren’t trying to attract hummingbirds!
