Oh my, there are tons of flowering plants that hummingbirds love although those flowers that are more trumpet shaped allow them to get the nectar easier. Things such as the Salvias, Cleome, Lavender, Four O clocks, Hostas, Hollyhocks. My experience is they will be happy with about any flower.

Delphiniums are another really good candidate, and I seem to recall them checking out my geraniums, too.
The great thing about gardening is that you always get a chance to start over!

I have hummingbirds all over my butterfly bushes, bee balms, agastache (especially agastache rupestris) and lobelia.

I think they like red flowers although they are into everything in my garden but they love red crocosmia Lucifer. Red Trumpet vine is also a real draw if you have room for it.
