What Are The Best Flowers To Attract Birds?

October 4, 2011 9:09 am

I don’t honestly think I’ve ever posted about birds. They are very common pets and very low-maintenance and generally quite nice to have around – but for whatever reason (read: I’m a dog lover), I don’t get much information on them for that reason.

I wanted to blog about birds though today, but not so much about birds being indoor pets – but what are the best flowers and floral arrangements to attract said birds.Coral Bells & Hummingbird

Now is the time of year that you should be planting for next year.. so why not, if you’re into it – plant some bird-attracting flowers?

While browsing this topic I came across birdwatching.com and they posted the following tips:

  • Landscaping for birds begins with trees and bushes. But the right flowers attract birds also
  • Leave those seeds for the birds from daisies.
  • Zinnias are great for not only the seeds for birds – but also attract butterflies.
  • Red flowers attract hummingbirds (try old-fashioned fuchsias, coral bells, bee balm (shown at right), hybiscus, and petunias.)
  • Birds <3 Sunflowers :p)

Have some fun with it – I’d love to hear your tips on the subject.

Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need
some help from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?

I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking
about creating my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks

It's in fact very difficult in this busy life to listen news on Television,
therefore I only use web for that reason, and take the most up-to-date information.

Hello there! I know this is kind of offf topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

I'm getting sick and tired of WordPress because I've had problems
with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform.

I would be fantastic if you could point me in the
direction of a good platform.
