Bees love all sorts of floweers: borage, queen anne's lace and cosmos for annuals. Lavender, artichokes and delphiniums are perrenial examples.

If you are wanting to attract bees for pollination purposes make sure you try to plant something that flowers at the same time as the relevent fruit or vegetable!

Take a look at the type of honey you can buy - heather, lavender, clover, wildflower. these are the kinds of plants that attract bees the most.
From personal experience, I would say lavender.
