Whatever you put in there, if you put a hummingbird feeder in it, keep it away from your house. The sugar water may drip and the ants will come marching in. I moved mine when that happened but the ants didn't march away with it. They still visit my home. I have rose of sharon bushes and the hummingbirds always come while they are in bloom. I don't know how they will do in a pot, though.

That's a great tip about the feeder, thanks!!! I did have a large pot last summer with a flowering vine that hummingbirds loved, but I just want to try something different this year.
