Q.What Is Cutting Off The Stems Of My Liatris Spicata And Leaving Them At The Base Of The Plant?

The cuts are on an angle and spear quite cleanly done. My initial thought was the beak of a bird…then a vole….no idea to be honest. Anyone else encounter this? Any thoughts on what it could be?

Unfortunately, your photo did not come through.

Perfect cuts would indicate scissors or a knife. I could suspect children, or other forms of vandalism, but there will be no way to confirm without seeing the damage.
