Slaphead, this is the post that I copied part of out of the greetings forum. I will comment on what I can with your list, others may chime in, there are many knowledgeable people that grow flowers for their bees.
Loved your various posts on planting for bees in BC. I'm intending to sow a mix of "native" PNW annuals in the spring in the hope it might help supplement the forage for my colonies. Here is the list (below). I'm interested to hear what you make of it.
Botanical Name Common Name
Achillea millefolium var California California Yarrow
Clarkia amoena Godetia
Clarkia unguiculata Farewell to Spring
Collinsia heterophylla Chinese Houses
Coreopsis tinctoria Plains Coreopsis
Eschscholzia californica California Poppy
Gilia capitata Globe Gilia
Gilia tricolor Bird's Eyes
Layia platyglossa Tidy Tips
Linanthus grandiflorus Mountain Phlox
Linum perenne lewisii Blue Flax
Lupinus albicaulis Sickle-keeled Lupine
Lupinus polyphyllus Russell Lupine
Mertzelia lindleyi Blazing Star
Nemophila maculata Five Spot
Nemophila menziesii Baby Blue Eyes
Oenothera hookeri Evening Primrose
Phacelia campanularia California Bluebell
In your list, these are the ones that I know the bees would enjoy immensely, others I am not too familiar with:
Clarkia Amoena (Godetia)
Clarkia unguilculata (farewell to spring)
Both clarkias above, the bees love
Coreopsis, yes, bees love it
Eschscholzia californica (California poppy), bees love it in late summer, excellent source of deep orange pollen, have found during the summertime California poppy is mostly not worked, because of the more attractive food sources that I have grown for them. But it may be wonderful all summer for you. California Poppy is the most beautiful flower, that orange stands out so beautifully amongst the blue flowers that I grow.
I am sorry, but that is all I can say about the flowers in your list. Bear in mind now, there may be others here that have grown these plants and can tell you yes, or no, I am just familiar with most of the plants on my plant lists, which you have already looked at. But this will get this thread going to help you out, smiling. Have that wonderful and most awesome day, life, health. Cindi
Bees on the California Poppy, this self-seeds and grows everywhere here and I LOVE it!!! This was taken on October 8 in 2007, after we had a hard frost, a very tough plant that can take some light frost.
Even the Syrphid Fly loves the California Poppy
