Color of Pollen That Bees Collect

Anonymous added on April 5, 2011 | Answered

My husband says plant pollen that bees collect is red, blue, or yellow. I say it is all yellow, and it is the flower color that varies not the pollen color. Can you help us out?

Pollen color can vary and occasionally (rarely and only in a handful of plants) it can be red or blue. Normally, however, it does not stray from the yellow/brown/green spectrum.
