more hummingbird plants blooming

This is an Abutilon. I only learned of this plant this year and spotted it at Eberts Nursery in Ixonia. I don't know if it will get big enough for the hummer to use planted in the ground, but I sure like it. It has a great verigated leaves as well. Next year I may try it in a hanging basket.

These are simple coral bells. I don't think this plant is that pretty, but it is actually a perennial here and hummers like it.

This is a Lonicera ‘Blanche Sandman’ honeysuckle. It is not growing as fast as my scarlet dropmore honeysuckle, but it is blooming. I bought two of these from High Country Gardens. Hoping they will take off and return year after year.

I know you have the plants for the hummingbird but do you also put out feeders? If so what is your recipe?

I only have one feeder out right now, but later in the summer I will add more. I usually make the nectar in a 4:1 ratio. 1 cup of water to 1/4 cup of sugar. Some people boil the water first, but I don't. I just make sure the sugar dissolves in it.
