"The selection of flowering garden plants that will not attract any of the stinging insects is almost impossible. In part, this is due to the diversity of insects and the wide variety of factors involved in the attraction of insects to flowers. ... the following list of flowers represents a group that should be non-attractive or only minimally attractive to the bees capable of inflicting a serious or painful sting. This group includes carnation, chrysanthemum, daisy, the red dianthus, geranium, marigold, rose, strawflower, and zinnia."
