Notes:

My Redbud and Butterfly Bush have holes in the leaves. Have treated for slugs. Have seen 2 leaf hoppers but nothing actually doing the chewing. What do you think is the cause and what is the solution?

    That minor damage isn’t harming the plants…

    Leaf Cutter Bees cut almost perfect “Semi-circles” out of my Red Bud Tree. It looks very characteristic in a couple of your leaves.
    Bees are beneficial.
