Last Summer I planted a lot of plants in hopes to attract bees. I love watching them buzz and work. I planted some Bee Balm, Butterfly Bushes, & Mosquitoe Plants, & Coreopisis...any other ideas?

Many plants that have conspicuos flowers attract bees.
I have some cosmos seed, it atracts bumblebees and tons of butterflies. PM me your address, I'll send some.
Zinnias also attract all sorts of bees, and butterflies.

Astilbes (perrenial for shade), I have never had so many bees in my life until I planted these. My apple trees are gonna love me for this.
