ANSWERED: A garden that will attract butterflies but not bees

Petersburg, VA

I want to plant a sidewalk strip garden for my sister in Saint Paul, Minnesota, Zone 5A. She used to have a garden there that attracted butterflies. She'd like that again, but has concerns about bees, as her husband is allergic to them. Are there flowers with long enough "throats" that the butterflies can steal the nectar, but the bees don't bother with them?
