Landscape Categories: Plants That Attract Hummingbirds
Comments: The dwarf do well in ground beds where they get full sunkight. In areas that have very hot weather, they will benefit from some shade in the afternoon. Slugs and snails love the new foliage of saivia. The dwarf do not seem to be as attractive to hummingbirds as do the taller growing varieties.
