    Any of the mint plants I believe (peppermint, spearmint, wintergreen, etc.)
    Alyssum
    Black Locust
    Buckwheat
    Chinese Tallow Tree
    All Clovers/Beans/Peas
    Coriander/Cilantro is good forage, and reputed to drive varoa away when the bees work enough of it
    Creosote Bush
    Mesquite
    Poppies
    Sesame (like the seeds on a hamburger bun)
    Tulip Poplar
    (most flowering trees)

    Those are a few I can add to your list "off the top of my mind."

    I'd would venture a guess that if bee like beebalm they like all cultivars as with mint etc... Nice start to a list of plants but lets not forget the weeds. Vetch is blooming in a field next to my house where I have my small bee yard surrounded by a herb garden. I am sure more people can add to this post just name a few of the plants that are near your bee yards that they are hitting
