Forty + Liatris aspera die suddenly in sand site
This happened in May/June of this year on the edge of a 240 acre savanna/prairie restoration in SW Michigan. The plants came up this spring then disappeared without a trace. Ideas? A L. aspera colony of perhaps 100 plants only 50 feet away, but across a single lane gravel road, is doing fine. Mole predation? Soil conditions? Karma? God's will?
