Plant with bees in mind - Grower #10 Peter Storer

We often think of many native plants as being 'bird attracting', but many flowers are valuable for bringing beneficial insects, such as stingless bees or honey bees, to the garden.

For example, the Samford Holly (Graptophyllum spinigerum) has small white flowers that may look rather insignificant to the human eye, but they are a magnet for a multitude of beneficial insects. Blue-banded bees love them, as do carpenter bees, which may vigorously defend a plant from interlopers.
