Hi,  
 
Do you know if Salvia Heatwave Breeze attracts honey bee's?

We see honey bees and carpenter bees on Salvia greggii, Salvia microphylla, and their crosses, which includes the Heatwave series. The salvias that have been most attractive to bees in the Haven are the S. microphylla cultivars 'Hot Lips' and 'San Carlos Festival', Salvia coahuilensis 'Purple Ginny', and our CA native Salvia clevelandii cultivars.
