I planted a Dollar Princess Fuchsia and from what I've read up on, these are Hummer magnets!

They really like impatiens, too--especially red ones. Impatiens has a large nectary for that size bloom and red is always an attractant for Todds.

Oh goody! I also planted red and white impatiens all around my house. I've always planted red and white impatiens in the gardens but never seen hummers around them in the past.
