Q.

honey bee preferred plants

Zone 40076 | Nancy Higdon added on May 27, 2016 | Answered

We have bee hives and I would like to plant plants that help out honey bees and preferably bloom all summer. If they don't bloom all summer, I need a list that bloom at different times so the bees have flowers all summer. What plants do you suggest?

It's great that you're a beekeeper! The easiest thing to remember about attracting bees is that they love flowers that are blue, white, yellow and purple.
