Nothing is better than the sound of busy bees in your garden. You're helping them while they are helping us…it’s a win win for everyone! Adding these plants to your garden will not only add beauty and color; the Bees will surely love you for it!
The chives bloom are another source of nectar for bees. Chives have a wonderfully mild onion flavor, rich but subtle, and perfect for any dish that does not need to be overwhelmed with strong tastes. The thick blade-like leaf of this Allium is suited for drying or freezing, but is best suited for fresh use. The flowers can be used as a garnish, or eaten in a light stir-fry.
This plant is a PERFECT source of nectar for our bee friends and in this kit you also get an echinacea which is a wonderful source for pollen! This lovely ornamental forms a bushy upright clump of lacy grayish leaves that are very fragrant. Spikes of rich violet-blue flowers appear in high summer, continuing into late fall. 'Russian Sage' is an extremely versatile garden plant and loves hot, sunny sites
This lovely herb is long blooming, and perfect for naturalizing in large masses, or as a specimen in your perennial or herb garden. Native to meadows, prairies and wooded areas of central and southeastern US. Easy to grow in full to part shade, Echinacea purpurea is tolerant of less than perfect conditions: drought, heat, humidity and less than perfect soil.
Daisy-like blooms from midsummer until frost. The eye-catching green "cone" center of these tender perennials is ringed by bright yellow petals with sun-kissed, pale yellow tips. These vibrant bloomers are a great addition to cut-flower bouquets. Weather-resistant plants with sturdy, upright stems covered in coarse hairs.
