Hummingbird/Butterfly Garden question?

I want to put a few plants and/or bushes on my deck that will attract Hummingbirds and/or Butterflies. Can anyone give me some ideas on what to put?

* I need something that can be contained within a pot since it will be on an overhead deck

* I have a problem with wasps so I don’t want to put anything that will attract wasps or bees

* I live in New Orleans, La. not sure if that makes a difference or not.

Any suggestions?

Thanks :o)

    I live in zone 5 so can’t help in your climate, but since they both feed on nectar, almost anything that attracts hummingbirds will attract bees. You might try flowers that are extra-deep (trumpet-shaped) so that bees can’t reach inside.

    Cardinal Flower ,Great Blue Lobelia ,Beebalm ,Foxglove ,honeysuckles,Trumpet Vine,
    Hollyhock ,do-drop ,lantana,Salvia,Hibiscus ” but might attract bees hibiscus but looks great in pots”, any of these will do great ..
