|I have euonymous shrubs and the leaves get small yellow spots which eventually extend throughout the entire leaf. They also get white powdery-looking spots too. I cut them off, but what are they and what do I do?

|Sounds like powdery mildew, a fungal disease. Pruning off the affected stems and branches will help open the euonymous up to better air circulation. You may want to spray with a copper based fungicide to protect the rest of the plant from the disease. Best wishes with your landscape!
