Honey Bees Love Russian Sage

If you want to plant a lovely perennial that bees clearly love, try Russian Sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia). It is a beautiful, easy care addition to the cottage garden, and you’ll be amazed at how the bees flock to it.

It does best in full sun, but it can also tolerate a bit of shade. It’s also deer-resistant!
