BEAUTIFUL!! I have some pink ones. The only problem I have is that the ants love to crawl in them. Do you know how to keep them out?

Thank You - That peony isn't mine - I just loaded it with permission from the vendor but the peonies I do have are blooming and yes, they had ants all over the buds and now in the flower. I don't know how to keep them out.

You want the ants on the peonies. They help them bloom. There is a thread over in the peony forum that has been talking about this.
