Want bees? Plant these!

Here are some plants that I have found through personal experience will attract many bees.

Russian Sage

  This plant is easy to grow, beautiful, and drought tolerant.

  I often look at this plant and think it looks a little like it’s from an alien planet. Something about the way the blooms look. Anyway, it’s always covered with bees, and the silver foliage makes a nice contrast with the other plants in my yard.

Cleveland Sage

  My favorite! This beautiful sage has the most amazing pungent sagey smell. Plus it blooms practically year round.

This gorgeous plant lines my driveway, and blooms almost all summer long. This variety is called ‘Ballerina White’.

 

Hummingbird Mint

  I have this perennial planted around a pummelo tree in my yard, which now has several pummelos forming on it. The bees have been at work.

   And now, a couple of herbs that will attract bees when blooming:

            Rosemary

I recommend putting any of these plants near your vegetable garden or fruit trees, to draw those pollinators in and get you the most productive season.
