What are the best flowering plants for attracting bees?

1 answer
Expert Answer

Blue and yellow flowering plants are the best plants for bees. These plants are even better if they are mass planted so bees can spend their time foraging in one area. Our native Hebe is also a bee magnet, as are fruit trees such as apple, pear, citrus and plum trees. Bees love herbs like borage, rosemary, lavender, sage and thyme too along with popular flowering annuals and perennials such as alyssum, catmint, cosmos, marigold and phlox.
