Fill Your Garden with Butterflies and Hummingbirds

Make your garden a magnet for these beautiful creatures with their favorite plants

One of the beautiful things about living in Mexico is the existence of butterflies and hummingbirds. While in other areas of Mexico, they are more prevalent due to a larger selection of colorful plants and flowers, we still do have a great selection here on the Mayan Riviera. What should be noted is that we do have seasons here too; many of the birds head north for spring and summer, a few types of butterflies do migrate. Even the flowers bloom more here at certain times (not always subject to season only). The biggest necessity for the colorful flowering plants is sunlight and water. Regular pruning will help to speed up the growth and abundance of flowers thus attracting more butterflies and hummingbirds.
