Crepe myrtle is very popular here in north central texas. The blooms are long lasting and the colors are attractive. I detect no fragrance and I have yet to see a bee on any crepe myrtle I've looked at closely. Any thoughts or knowledge on the tree as a nectar source? Mike

Went out to check my crepe myrtles, raspberry color, 4:30 pm. 106F. aprox. 100ft. from hives that have been looking for necter for several weeks. Saw one bee.
This is going to be one long hot dry summer.
I am 30mi. NW of Los Angeles.
My main crop, Black Sage, failed to materialize this spring.
