Ants on sea holly plant
This is the first sea holly that I've grown and I wasn't able to find any information on my problem so I hope someone here can help me.
Yesterday I noticed a bunch of ants on one of the flower cones and it looks like the ants are pulling out the seeds?? Or maybe the plant is seeding and the ants are attracted to it for some reason?? I would like to collect some seeds off my plants this fall but I've read that I will have to wait until the flower heads turn brown first. So if the ants are pulling out all the seeds, what can I do to get rid of them or at least make my flowers less attractive to them?
