Favorite flowers for bees and other pollinators?
While selecting plant materials for my new garden, I have had no trouble finding great information about food sources for hummingbirds and butterflies. I have made sure I have included a few prime flowers for both.
However, I had had a much harder time finding information about flowers that attract bees and other lesser known pollinators. Most information about bees online is focused on keeping bees with the goal of harvesting honey. I am just interested in finding a few plants that wild bees will enjoy.
Here are a few flowers that I will be planting that, according to online references. seem to be enjoyed by bees:
Agastache 'Blue Blazes'
Perovskia 'Blue Spires'
Can you all think of any other plants that are good for bees and/or other pollinators that I should consider?
Thanks in advance for any help or input,
