hollyhock flowers and hummingbirds

Zone 9a | snakeskins added on May 8, 2015 | Answered

If I take dried, crushed hollyhock flowers and mix them into the hummingbird nectar I make, would that be bad for hummingbirds? The flowers are purple and would make a good water color.

There are only two things that are absolutely safe to put in your hummingbird feeders: white sugar and water. Adding anything other than white sugar and water could put their health at risk.
