  • Love these for hummingbirds

    Posted by Brenda on Jun 14th 2023

    The last two years I have finally purchased these for my hummingbird garden. I have them in a large combination planter and they grow so beautifully and they love them. I just wish they were a perennial.

  • Hummingbirds love these!

    I bought one of these plants from Romence Gardens about 3 years ago. It did so well in my yard and attracted several hummingbirds which visited daily. I recently moved to a different state and was thrilled to see these were still available. I just recently purchased 3. The plants arrived very healthy and I already have some hummingbirds visiting them in my new yard!

  • All the plants were healthy

    It just isn't growing as big as it normally would have here. We have had some really warm days and lately quite a bit of rain. I used the same kind of potting mix, etc. I love this plant and buy it for the hummingbirds.

    I had watched a Proven Winner video about these flowers and just had to try them. The plants grew great, loaded with flowers, unfortunately I did not see all the hummingbirds Proven Winners said they would attract. I did like the flowers and will buy these again.

    I ordered from Romence Gardens for the first time this year. I needed plants to support our summer resident ruby-throated hummingbirds. These vermillionaire plants did very well. They filled out nicely and attracted hummingbirds and insect pollinators. The plants are still going strong in mid-October!

  • Highly recommended

    I call this plant my hummingbird magnet....they love it . It is just about ending and our nights have been cold....I will keep buying this until you don't have it.

  • Great plant

    It started small but boy did it end up large. I planted it in a pot. Also hummingbirds and bees love it.
