Agonized and Separated Liatris Corms – Zone 8 Morning 65 Degrees
The soldiers did well with water and sun. Wouldn't you know the next 2 days the temp turned 80 degrees? The spikes drooped. What to do now?
When a plant is dug and separated, it will usually experience transplant shock. When digging, roots are severed. When replanted into a sunny area, the shock will be greater. Your plant has just had "major surgery", give it time to heal and recover. When a plant is disturbed during bloom, generally the blooms suffer. Keep it watered, but not soppy wet and give a little shade during the heat of the day (11-6).
