Shade Plants for Honey Bees
I am eyeing a spot for a new garden bed that I want to plant specifically for my honey bees. It's against the west side of my screened porch so it only gets sun from noon to about 3pm. It'll be a raised bed so the soil will be good; the size will be about 18'x4' or so.
What plant recommendations do you have for this site?
I've identified bee balm, foxgloves, and maybe astilbe but would like your confirmation and suggestions. What about planting the whole thing with just bee balm?
