Ants Attracted To Dahlia (I'm a Dahlia newbie)
I bought a cheapie tuber at Wal-Mart, and it's actually growing quite well (I think). Never planted dahlia before, so I'm not sure how well it really is ;) I've noticed that the main stalks have tons of ants crawling all over it, down inside the center etc. I don't really notice the ants bothering any of my other plants. Is dahlia foliage especially attractive to ants or something? Just seems kinda odd...never saw that before in my garden.
