Lobelia Queen Victoria

It has now been 'eaten' some 6 inches from bottom twice.It is in the midst of other herbacious plants which have no damage done to them.
Couls this be mice. Is this plant more prone to attack than others. Help please.

I would not put mice anywhere near the top of the list for this, they are not generally into leaves, stems etc. Any signs of grubs or other invertebrate munchers, any droppings (look REALLY carefully they have great camouflage)? The restriction to the bottom 6in is puzzling. How about a photo.

eating all but the bottom six inches?

here that is what it looks like if a larger one comes through. they do seem to be selective some romps. i can have a whole field of newly sprouted alfalfa or trefoil and instead of eating that, they'd rather risk their lives going after the bean sprouts. after a while they ignored the larger bean plants and went after the soybean sprouts. before the beans came up they went after only certain weeds out in the back strawberry patch.
