In the southern part of the United States, Hummingbird Bush (also known as Flame Acanthus or Firebush) is a great option for attracting hummingbirds.
It is a drought-tolerant native plant of Texas with bright orange flowers. And as the name implies, it is one of the best flowers for hummingbirds!
It can also be grown as an annual in cooler regions where the bush will grow to about 2 feet tall.
