Bee-Friendly Flowers

Bright colors, sweet scents, and plenty of hydration are a winning recipe for bringing pollinating bees into your garden, backyard, or front porch. Bees need all of these things, along with a bit of shade to be successful pollinators, and we need bees to maintain our food sources. Thanks to their intricate pollinating activity, bees are responsible for almost 70 of the top 100 food crops worldwide, which equates to about 90% of all consumed food. Bice’s Florist encourages you to create a simple space outside your home that invites bees to thrive.

Invite bees to visit your garden or yard with blooms like you find in our Golden Radiance bouquet. Fragrant roses, bright sunflowers, and gorgeous lilies are all favorites among the bee community and will draw a crowd of these industrious little friends. Bees love bright colors, sweet fragrance, and simple petals. Include a bouquet like this in your outdoor patio area for another great bee-friendly option.

Setting out fresh blooms regularly, growing bee-friendly flowers in your garden, and keeping your yard free of toxic pesticides are all excellent ways to encourage a healthy bee population that’s as beautiful as it is eco-friendly.
