  1. San Diego offers a wonderful climate for growing quite a variety of beautiful hummingbird plants, shrubs and vines to suite any garden style. As for vines, a few worthy contenders for growing near the coast include Chinese trumpet creeper (Campsis grandiflora), cypress vine (Ipomoea quamoclit), cape honeysuckle (Tecoma capensis), and honeysuckle (Lonicera) such as coral or gold flame honeysuckle (L x heckrottii).

    As for shrubs and perennials, you might consider agastache, crocosmia, calliandra, ceanothus, Australian fuchsia (Correa), pineapple guava (Feijoa sellowiana), any of the scented geraniums (Pelargonium), any of the salvias (try hummingbird sage), or agastache. Happy planting!

      Thank you so much for the large selection. I'm headed to Kmart today to see what I can find.
