The flower, not the school. The other day, my husband showed me how to break the tiny bulb off the end of the columbine flowers, and to push out a VERY sweet nectar from the flower. They contain a few drops of a very sweet, lightly syrupy nectar. I was wondering if anyone knew whether this was okay to offer a glider? Here's a site with a pic of some columbine: Columbine

The Rocky Mountain ones look a bit different color-wise, but similar. I think the guys would love it, but won't let them try it unless I'm absolutely certain there won't be side effects.

I love growing these, but around here they are long past flowering stage already.. good question for another year for me though.. no idea if they are safe or not.. I'd like the answer too... I don't see them on a safe or non safe plant list I have printed..

Here's the list I have...

Toxic plants

An alphabetical list of some of the more common plants follows. To see whether or not one of your plants is poisonous (toxic), look it up on this list and check to see what number follows its name. Then read the information below which corresponds to that number. If you have any questions or if your plant is not included on this list, please call Poison Control.

1. Major Toxicity - These plants may cause serious illness or death. If ingested, immediately call Poison Control or a doctor (veterinarian)

2. Minor Toxicity - Ingestion of these plants may cause minor illnesses such as vomiting or diarrhea. If ingested, call Poison Control or a doctor (veterinarian).

3. Oxalates - The juice or sap of these plants contains oxalate crystals. These needle-shaped crystals can irritate the skin, mouth, tongue, and throat, resulting in throat swelling, breathing difficulties, burning pain, and stomach upset. Call Poison Control or a doctor (veterinarian) if any of these symptoms appear following ingestion of plants.

4. Dermatitis -The juice, sap, or thorns of these plants may cause a skin rash or irritation. Wash the affected area of skin with soap and water as soon as possible after contact. The rashes may be very serious and painful. Call Poison Control or your doctor (veterinarian) if symptoms appear following contact with the plants.

Here's something else I found that might come in useful...


toxic PLANTS

by Fredric L. Frye, DVM.
There is a mistaken belief that all animals know what is and is not good
to eat. This is a mistake--a potentially lethal mistake--when you are
talking about an animal who has been removed from its native habitat.
An animal in its native environment does know what it can and cannot eat.
If it makes a mistake, and becomes merely ill, it will not eat that plant
again. If it eats a plant that kills it, well, it clearly won't be eating
that again! The fact that the leading causes of death in the wild is not
from eating toxic foods indicates that animals either learn their lessons
well by observing older conspecifics, or through a sort of genetic field
guide to edible plants.
Once you remove an animal from its environment, however, that field guide
becomes useless. Instead, the animal will pretty much try to eat anything
that resembles what it is programmed (learned or instinctual behavior) to
eat. Hence, toxic plants such as poinsettias, with their wide deep green
leaves and attractive red flowers (actually, leaves, the flowers themselves
being the small yellow structures in the middle of the red leaves) look
like a terrific snack for a hungry or curious animal.
The toxic chemicals of plants are passed to an animal in one of two ways -
by ingestion of plant material, or by dermal contact with a plant. If
anyone has ever had poison oak or ivy, you are quite familiar with this
latter method of transmission. Some plants are completely toxic; others
have only certain parts that are toxic, such as the leaves, or flowers.
Keep this list somewhere handy so that you may refer to it as needed when
considering plants for your animals.
Note: If you are in doubt as to whether a plant, or part of a plant, is
toxic either do not use the plant, or discuss it with other
herpetoculturists and horticulturists to see if they have ever had
experience with that plant.
