Bee Attracting Plants

Bees on Purple Coneflower

Looking for plants that will bring the bees to your garden?? Well, I gotcha covered! One of the many categories I have listed for you is plants that attract our native bees and the honey bees.

Native Wisteria, Wisteria frutescens

Did you know there are 4,000 species of bees native to the United States? How cool is that! I am not going to list all those species in the categories, so they are lumped under the “native bees” category. However, if I know that a plant attracts certain types of those native bees, then that info will be in listed in the description page for that plant.

Carolina Jessamine, Gelsemium sempervirens

Honey bees are listed separately because they’re are a non-native species. Contrary to popular belief, they are actually native to Eurasia. We have no bees native to the United States that produce honey in the quantity that honey bees do.

Cutleaf Coneflower, Rudbeckia laciniata

So. Click here, Plants that Attract Native Bees, and here, Plants that Attract Honey Bees, to see which plants you need to add to your garden.

As always, ask me if you have any questions.

Happy diggin’ in the dirt!
