Answer: Coneflowers are generally pest free, so it is difficult to guess what might be eating the leaves. A slug or snail might eat holes in the foliage, check carefully for those. Slugs are active at night but leave a tell tale silvery trail behind. These can be hand picked or treated with a bait containing iron phosphate as the active ingredient (such as Sluggo). I hope this helps.
