I'd go with german: hallertau, perle, saaz, etc.

I like 'em in a wheat beer.

My favorite for Apricot Wheat is Citra; it really compliments the apricot flavor.  I add 0.5 oz of Citra to the primary fermentation, the apricot puree in a secondary, and 1.5 oz of Brewer's Best natural apricot extract after racking.  It gets rave reviews from family and friends who know their beers.
