    For the petunias, likely it was a little of the sun and a little of the ants. Petunias need plenty of water under hot sun and if they were not watered 2-3 times a day, depending on the heat, they would have died more quickly. The ants tunneling through the roots would have sped this along.

    Blanket flowers are more drought tolerant than petunias, but if you have them in a pot, I would recommend that you water them at least daily for optimal growth,
