I planted a large number of zinnias in every color I could find, and that seemed to really attract them. I also planted some bee balm and foxglove in that area.
We had a hummingbird feeder among the flowers, but I really think the zinnias were the primary attraction...Hope this helps! :)
Happy gardening....Jada
