What Kind Of Flowers Attract Hummingbirds in North West Ohio. zone 5

THE COLOR RED GETS THERE EYE , AND ANY TRUMPET SHAPED RED / RED-ORANGE FLOWERS TO FEED THEM . I HAVE 3 OR 4 CIGAR BUSHES THAT BOTH BUTTERFLY’S & HUMMERS LOVE . IF YOU USE FEEDERS ——PLACE THEM FAR ENOUGH APART WHERE 1 CAN’T GUARD MORE THAN THE ONE IT IS FEEDING FROM ( THEY ARE VERY TERATORIAL AND WILL FIGHT OVER FEEDERS ) ONE DAY I HAD A RED T-SHIRT ON AND A HUMMER HOVERED ABOUT 15" – 18" FROM ME AS I STOOD FROZE TO WATCH IT , THEY ARE SO NEAT

Monarda, asclepias (will attract butterflies, too), wisteria, hibiscus, clematis, trumpetflower. Those are the flowers that attract them the most in my yard and I am in the same geographic zone as you. You won’t believe how many you will get with a hardy red hibiscus!

A person once told be to get beabaum which is a trumpet like flower, red in color. We were successful in attracting hummingbirds. I have never found either seeds or plants after that initial year.

Red salvia are my favorites in Norwest Ohio. Here they are grown as annuals and can be planted after the danger of frost is gone. My favorite perennial is Bee Balm.
