Q.Echinachia Flowers Are Being Cut From The Plants

Zone 48912 | Anonymous added on October 22, 2022 | Answered

On fully grown Echinachia (sp) the flowers have been cleanly cut from the stem of the plant. My gardens are rabbit proof and I was wondering if this “plucking” of the flowers without damaging the stem is something birds do. Thanks
