Hummingbird and Butterfly Garden

For the past several years, I have been creating a hummingbird and butterfly garden. I roto-tilled much of the front lawn and started planting perennials that are attractive to hummers and butterflies. In addition, I put out pots for perennials that will not over-winter in this hardiness zone (6) and take them in for the winter.

There is a heavy emphasis on Salvias, but not the generic Salvia you buy at the local greenhouse. The ones I use are perennials, mostly from the southwest, that are craved by hummingbirds. I acquired most of them online from nurseries such as Plant Delights, High Country Gardens, and Avant Gardens.
