Derived from the nectar of wildflowers, it typically darker in color, an important factor because, as a general rule, darker honey has more health properties, including antioxidants, as compared to honey of lighter color. Wildflower honey is special because it is derived from the nectar of, not one, but a variety of wildflowers. It is like a natural cocktail of nectar and pollen from several wildflowers. That makes wildflower honey a difficult variety to get. It is simply not common to have a setting where wildflowers from different types of shrubs, grasses and trees are present without one type dominating the rest. Wildflowers are usually part of the mix in most places but rarely the dominant group of plants.
