I have planted coleus in a shady area. The leaves are being snacked on from the edges in. The leaves have holes at first, then continue to be destroyed. Any idea what it is and how to stop it? This hasn't happened just to the coleus this year. It is whatever I try to plant in that area. Most ornamental annuals. The perennials seem to be unaffected. Please see picture. Thank you Hania
