    The answer will partially depend on your location.

    Seoul, South Korea, would be USDA zone 7 equivalent. Iím in USDA zone 8, so my winter is a bit warmer than that of Seoul. From your list, I have tried Oregano, Phacelia tanacetifolia, Evening primrose, and Centaurea cyanus. They are easy to grow but not too hard to control. If you can control dandelions in your yard, you can control these four. Oregano and Centaurea cyanus are very popular with my honey bees but
    Phacelia tanacetifolia, Evening primerose are not. It may not be the case in your location though.

    I don't think they are invasive but there are some plants that attract bees more. You can do a google search on that.

    purple coneflower is no, I never see any honey bees on it ever, a lot of bumbles. Anise is no, it is a very tender perennial in my area harsh zone 5 but bees love and is fairly easy to grow. I would find other members of the mint family to plant though.
