In general terms, you want a variety of flowers that will produce good amounts of nectar and pollen, and you want them to bloom in a staggered fashion so that there are always flowers available to pollinators. As far as specific plants go, you could try some of the following: Aster, Black-eyed Susan, Caltrop, Creosote bush, Currant, Elder, Goldenrod, Huckleberry, Joe-pye weed, Lupine, Purple coneflower, etc. The attached citation includes a longer list of both native and cultivated plant varities especially well-suited for attracting bees. Hope it helps!
