Insects play an important role in our gardens. Pollination is a major function many insects perform. Without plant pollination, environments would change drastically. Bees provide a crucial service in pollinating, thus greatly deserving our investment.
Choose bee attracting plants to take advantage of their fundamental ability and encourage biodiversity in your garden. Bees love blue, purple and yellow flowers especially.
Many Australian natives are perfect for attracting bees also. Plants such as Banksia, Bottlebrush, Callistemon, Eucalypts, and Wattles are ideal
Here is a brief list of some great bee attracting flowering plants - Alyssum, Aster, Borage, Camellia, Catmint, Convolvulus, Cornflower, Cosmos, Geranium, Hebe, Lavender, Marigold, Nasturtium, Poppy, Rosemary, Sunflower and Thyme.
