I have been reading about the problems with honey bees, and want to do the best I can to keep them around. Trouble is my yard is full of pine trees, which means I have a lot of shade. I have a FAIRLY sunny spot on the patio. Are they any plants that thrive in the shade that attract honey bees? I am in Zone 9A
