SUMMER HUMMERS AND FLUTTERERS
Create a haven for the kind of wildlife that only brings smiles without any of the destruction. This type of wildlife does not dig, burrow, chew, or trample our treasured plants.
Butterflies and hummingbirds can add a new dimension to your garden, all you have to do is entice them. Here are some ways to encourage these small "welcomed" visitors to linger, flutter, and hum throughout the summer.
Hummingbirds are attracted to anything with the color red. Flowers such as Petunias, Fuschias, Hollyhocks, Penstemon, Coral Bells, Salvia, Bee Balm, and Honeysuckle are their favorites. By adding a bright red feeder and keeping it filled with instant nectar these little powerhouses will linger until the weather sends them south.
Butterflies love to flit and flutter from flower to flower searching out nectar. To get them dancing and dining for hours, use some of their favorites; Lilacs, Cosmos, Clematis, Columbine, Foxglove, Daylilies, Purple Coneflower, Yarrow, Verbena and of course don't forget Butterfly Bush!
Landsystems can help you create a wildlife habitat of the non-destructive kind!
