Dear Joe;
	AS I recal hummingbirds are attracted to red flowers. Most 
hummingbrid feeders are usually bright red or red and yellow.
	But even red flowers have to have quantity of nectar.
	I always see them return to tall small flowered cannas. Wild 
indica types.  They don't much bother with geraniums (Pelargonium) 
even though many are bright red, they must be fairly low in nectar.

	You should have lots of cannas to grow there		Jim
