WHY are we so excited about this?
WHO loves PEONIES?
5 REASONS WHY people (and ants) love PEONIES:
And finally... #5
The ANTS... Don't stop reading-- this is cool, I promise! So, the peony begins as a very tight bud of petals that needs a little help to open into the beautiful bloom you know and love. Who does this, you ask? The ants do! These little itchy buggers crawl into the petals to get to the sweet nectar in the middle of the bloom. In doing so, the ants help loosen the petals, allowing the flower to relax its grip and get to blooming! Furthermore, if you grow peonies and notice ants crawling around, DON'T knock them off the petals! Ants keep away other pesky bugs that would like to chew up those gorgeous petals. See? Even the ants serve a valuable purpose in the beauty of the world!
2 WAYS you can get your paws on some of these PEONY beauties:
If you have gardening space, be patient, and head to your local garden center in the FALL season (not Spring), and pick up some pots of your favorite peony varieties to see beautiful blossoms next year.
