    what color does crepe myrtle honey have, my reading indicates that could be two different colors, one very light almost blonde to white, the other darker almost like buckwheat. and what color of flower on her crepe myrtle, do you find your bees like best. I've just moved the bees into an area where crepe myrtle of all color and sizes are found.. does crepe myrtle yield well, or only pollen.

    I have pink and red crepe myrtle in my yard. My bee hives are 50 yards distance, and I seldom see a bee on them.
