I don't know myself, but this post talks about sugar cane
Sugar cane honey discussion thread
Doesn't look too promising.

Sugar cane is not something they find desirable.

thanks for the replies and the article   I was told the bees would work the flowers but all the cane here is in flower and the bees aren't touching it, they love the actual peeled cane though.
