Bee Supporting Plants

If you’re looking for an excuse to visit your local nursery and you want to help bees at the same time, I’ve got a few new plants to add to your garden. Monarch Promise Milkweed has bright orange and red flowers and while milkweed is host to monarch butterflies, the bees love it too. I just added Beyond Midnight Bluebeard to my garden, it’s a blue flowering shrub that’ll bring bees and hummingbirds around. Rainbow Marcella Purple Coneflower is a new variety that starts off a light orange and turns to pink as the season goes on.
