  1. I love that you are growing plants that were so dear to your dad! Many of the succulents and cacti bear flowers that provide abundant nectar for hummingbirds. Some that you might want to consider include sedums, aloes, agaves, some of the echeverias, kalanchoe, cotyledon, crassula, yucca, cacti, and ocotillo (Fouquieria). Two other worthy contenders include slipper flower (Pedilanthus macrocarpus) and Xmangave, which is a cross between agave and manfreda. Happy shopping!
