Does the white one attract bees as much as the blue one?

Be interesting to know, given their vision range
I didn't even know it existed - might get some and throw in between the blue/purple stuff I've got on the plot (somewhere - I turned the soil over and can't remember where the borage was!)

Interestingly, the white one seems to be more expensive in the seed catalogues.Granny on the Game

I grew the white one last year and a few blue ones appeared in it. Don't remember the bees on it in particular but it was amongst chives and other bee plants.
For visual impact I prefer the blue. The white didn't stand out in a crowd! Don't know yet whether it has selfseeded - must have a look!Nutty and Norty
