You will attract many hummingbirds if you create a small garden environment.

Use plants of varying sizes, texture, and bright color. For example, hummingbirds are attracted to Pentas, a small colorful annual (Zone 7 Maryland). In the mid-height range, use salvias, mint or sage. For your tallest plants, select Lavendar, Butterfly Weed and Bee Balm. Vines such as honeysuckle and trumpet vine are also attractive to hummers.

I have a garden with many Lantana plantings, and it sometimes seems like a hummingbird "airport."

Another thought, the colors of red hibiscus and zinnia plants really attract them to the garden.

Use organics for pest control, and mist the garden for the Hummingbird’s.

Any type of tubular flower they like – especially if it is red. They don’t go by scent, just nectar and color. They enjoy many perennials – bee balm, salvia, butterfly bush, scabiosa, foxglove, petunias, delphinium.
