Skimmia needs an evenly moist yet well drained soil (meaning damp but never saturated or soggy) that is humusy or organic and somewhat acidic. I would suggest you consult with your county extension and run some soil tests to make sure you have it planted in a suitable place and help you trouble shoot. In my experience the symptoms you describe could be related to planting in too heavy a soil such as clay, or in a spot that is too wet.
