Garden folklore has long told that,
So as to bloom, a peony
Needs an ant in its habitat.
Otherwise, bloomless it will be.
Though this has proven to be myth,
A peony and an ant do
Have mutual benefit with
Each other, thus a well paired two.
The peony provides the ant
With nectar as food for a guest.
This insect then protects this plant
From aphids, thrips and other pest.
The peony and the ant share
Common reason to stay a pair.
