Utilize Flowers Instead of Sugar Water for Hummingbirds

Utilize Flowers Instead of Sugar Water for Hummingbirds

July 20, 2019

Did you know the sugar water that you buy from the store, the kind with the red dye in it, is actually very harmful to hummingbirds?

We recommend instead to plant flowers that hummingbirds can naturally eat from. Here are our top 5 recommendations:

  • Coral Bells
  • Penstemon 
  • Bee Balm
  • Weigela
  • Honeysuckle

And if you want to fill that hummingbird feeder just use the 1:4 ratio which is 1/4 cup refined white sugar in 1 cup of water. Bring that solution to a boil and let it cool before adding to your feeder.
