We have this plant that has not come back to life this season. Holes in the leaves - does that mean beetles? Caterpillar? I don't know. There is some green foliage at thevery top but it is otherwise very brown. It is in a Sunny location. I would like to know what it is so i canfigure out if we can save it or if it needs to be cut down. It is beautiful when green.

Taking liberal license from Monty Python's "Dead Parrot" skit. Time to get out the saw and shovel.
