Mourning Doves Will Flock To Your Yard For This Easy-To-Grow Flower
Attracting mourning doves to your yard can be as simple as planting cosmos flowers, an easy-to-grow and low-maintenance annual that provides the food these
birds love.
Mourning doves' diet primarily consists of grains and seeds. Cosmos are self-seeding plants that produce lots of small, black seeds, ensuring a steady supply of food for the birds.
Cosmos can grow up to 6 feet tall and flourish from summer to fall. Their flowers resemble daisies in appearance and bloom in white, pink, red, orange, maroon, and yellow colors.
They are drought tolerant and require just full sun and well-drained soil. Planting a colorful mix of these vibrant flowers can help you draw mourning doves to your garden.
