Audubon Workshop has a catalog full of ideas for attracting birds
Audubon Workshop was created in 1930 to provide bird lovers suggestions and items that would attract birds and butterflys. Besides an extended variety of bird houses, bird baths, mason bee houses, and squirrel baffles, the Audubon Workshop catalog has a page after page of plants that would attract birds, hummingbirds and butterflys.
There is a section on red flowers for hummingbirds featuring columbine and honeysuckle. There are evening blooming plants like primroses, lavender, and a Soft Cloud Sedum, which, if you leave the blooms, will feed birds in the spring. What caught my eye was a Coreopsis called Route 66 which is lovely cream and wine colored flowers on a plant that doesn't mind heat, drought, poor soil, and neglect while providing food for butterflies and seeds for songbirds. Sounds perfect!
