Nothing brings more delight to a gardener than seeing hummingbirds sipping from their garden perennials and shrubs. Two species of hummingbirds spend the winter in the Pacific Northwest: Anna’s and Rufus. Serious gardeners and birdwatchers will want to include these late fall and winter blooming shrubs and perennials to provide some much-needed nectar during the short, cold days of winter. Many of the plants on the list are long-blooming evergreens, which provide shelter from cold wind and rains.
