Peonies“Peonies are usually sold as bare-root tubers with 3 to 5 eyes (buds), divisions of a 3- or 4-year-old plant” from the Farmers Almanac “Peonies are said to symbolize a happy life and a happy marriage”

Here is an article about the Biological Mutualism of Ants and Peonies. “It’s a myth that ants are necessary for peonies to bloom” (but they do love the nectar from Peonies)
