Maureen Austin

Agastache spp
It is a hummingbird favorite, so it's one of MY favorites! I love the colors of the flowers, fragrance of the leaves, and versatility of the plant.
Additional Details

Asclepias curassavica
A beautiful flowering milkweed with leaves that provide food for hungry monarch and queen caterpillars, and blooms that attract butterflies of all types for nectar.
Additional Details

Galvezia speciosa
Beautiful scarlet blooms attract hummingbirds, and the leaves are a host for buckeye butterflies (caterpillars). Plus, it's a drought-tolerant California native.
Additional Details

Gaura spp
It has the wispy "feel" of a grass, but benefit of the pink and/or white nectar blooms which attract butterflies. Plus, it has a very long bloom period and is extremely hardy and drought-tolerant.
Additional Details

Salvia spp
I'm a salviaholic. I never met a salvia I didn't love! And hummingbirds love them, too.
Additional Details

Verbena bonariensis
I love how it sways in the breeze, as if to "call" butterflies in for its sweet nectar. It's versatile--looking good anywhere in the garden, and is very drought-tolerant.
