Bee Plants

The best plants are the Mexican giant hyssop, which was particularly good for bumblebees, while borage was best for honeybees and lilac sage was second best.

Wild marjoram and Greek Origanum were found to be most attractive to wild solitary bees.

Lavenders such as the white Lavender edelweiss and the blue lavender grossblau were also good for attracting the insects.
