Hopefully I will find out Sarah. Every time they came into bloom something happened and they died off over the past two years. The 3rd plant in the pot bloomed this summer but that was when we found huge amounts of ants. The Pyrethrum did kill the ants but it damaged the flower and many leaves. They did finally recover and the both other plants in the same pot are producing now.

No, not fire ants we don't have them where we live in NC. At least not at this time.
We bought a piece of property in September about 2 hours from where we live now that does have fire ants. Holy Cow! I learned first hand how bad they are when they bite you.
