3. Cardinal Flower

This is a perennial flower that grows up to four feet tall, however, it loves to soak up full sun, and is easy to grow. Giving red flowers in the early summer, this plant attracts hummingbirds to its blooms.

Hummingbird territory stretches from the north to the south, with migration areas extending well into South America.

Over the years, they have become a favorite for gardeners and bird watchers who appreciate their beautiful feathers. These small birds have a large personality though. They have been known to fight off larger intruders, including hawks. They will absolutely chase other birds from their territory. Nicknamed the β€œAvian Helicopter”, these versatile creatures live life in the fast lane. Create your own backyard restaurant for these birds and enjoy the view! Always remember, be humble and kind to nature.
