If agastache grows well in your area, the bees love it. It's a perrenial is many areas. Almost anything that is related to the mints is great.

Clover of one type or another is hard to beat.

The JC-recommended bottlebrush is also an early source of pollen. My neighbor's bottlebrush was covered with bees last (mid?) February. I don't know the variety.
