Hummingbird-Butterfly Garden! Enjoy colorful blooms, birds, and butterflies all summer long with an easy care perennial garden for a sunny location. Hummingbirds and butterflies will flock to the nectar in lavender-blue Catmint (Nepeta faassenii), pink and white Coneflowers (Echinacea 'Magnus' and 'White Swan'), white Gayfeather (Liatris spicata 'Alba'), compact Bee Balm (Monarda 'Pink Lace'), 30-inch-tall, mauve-purple Joe Pye Weed (Eupatorium 'Baby Joe') and aromatic Agastache 'Blue Fortune'.
Please, do not put honey, Jell-O, brown sugar, fruit, or red food coloring in your feeder! Honey ferments rapidly when diluted with water and can cause mouth sores and even kill hummingbirds. The red dye has NO beneficial ingredients, and it is not necessary to color the water to attract birds to your feeder. Further, there are unverified reports that red dye can cause tumors in hummers.
