Could be that the drainage is not as good around the middle one and that's what's causing the yellowing foliage. It's normal for some of the inner leaves to turn yellow and be shed, but the entire shrub should not be turning yellow. If it is, you may need to dig it out, amend the soil so it drains a little better and then replant. If you don't correct poorly draining soils, the roots can rot and the shrub will die. Hope you can fix it soon!
