So far I have only seen humming birds visiting Lonicera sempervirens with any regularity in my garden.
I was surprised to see my lone hummer also repeatedly visit a bowman's root ( Porteranthus stipulatus) that was blooming near one of the native honeysuckles. It has a profusion of small white flowers and delicate feathery cut leaves. Those leaves blaze red in the fall. It is a lax plant that I usually end up staking.
It is not blooming yet and I can't find an older photo of it in bloom but I have a photo of the leaves now.
It is the taller feathery plant on the top right.
