Large containers like this blue faux marbled tall one are the perfect showcase for a group of blooming and foliage plants that hummingbirds love.

Golden agastache is one of them. The chartreuse colored leaves smell like licorice, and the blue-purple spiky blooms are hummingbird magnets. It is hardy to USDA zone 5.

Dahlia Bishop Series is a great choice to consider for your containers, since the bronze-burgundy leaves are beautiful even when the plant isn’t blooming. There are several cultivars in this series, so you can pick the flower color you prefer (yellow, peach, pink, red and white).

Red calibrachoa and Helychrisum cascade down from the sides and front of the container, adding more color and balancing the composition.

In the back of the container, the tall, dark stems of Salvia Black and Blue (Salvia Guaranitica) add height and act as a backdrop. This salvia is hardy to USDA zone 8, but might survive the winter in zone 7 with some protection.

Full sun and proper watering will keep a combination like this one looking great from spring to fall.
