All channels lead to one place so, like sperm, only one will start the 
reproductive process. Every bloom on the same plant can be fertilized, even 
those in the same socket.

Bees arn't natures only pollenizers. Wind can do it too. We live in a breezy 
area so we must try to pull the anthers as soon as possible if we are going 
to try a cross.
