Blue or White ?

The accepted opinion is Bees have a preference for blue flowers over other colours. I noticed this summer that the bees visited the white flowers of perennial Basil more than any others, even though the blue Salvia is right next to the Basil plant. As with anything in nature, the answer is usually more complex than we think.
