This polymer clay flower is a beautiful shade of lavender blue, very finely and subtly streaked with various shades of magenta and blue. I have two different strains of Blue Phlox in my garden, one tending more towards violet, the other more blue in color. This one favors the violet. There are contrasting whitish markings at the base of each petal, and starburst shaped violet markings radiating out from the center. There is an opening in the center of the flower and hummingbirds sip sugar water "nectar" through the opening, just as they would in nature--and yes, hummingbirds will readily visit a blue feeder, not just red ones (see photo of feeder in use).

A custom made green stopper at the base of the flower fits perfectly into a clear glass, 60mL, recycled mini liquor bottle. This 60mL bottle is slightly larger than my usual 50mL ones. Although simple in design, it has a quiet elegance in that the shoulders taper subtly to a narrower bottom, and the neck flares wider. This is not your average, straight sided mini liquor bottle. A soft brass wire hanger is twisted around the bottle, forming a secure harness.

Entire length of this feeder is approximately 5 3/4". The flower itself is 2 1/16" in diameter.

I have spent a lot of time field testing and perfecting my feeders before I decided to sell them. I'm quite proud of them. They look so natural that hummingbirds respond to them as if they were real flowers. My local Ruby-throated Hummingbirds have eagerly accepted them.

All of my feeders come with the necessary instructions for mixing nectar, filling, hanging, and cleaning. If you have any questions about them, before or after purchase, please feel free to contact me.
