Any idea what is going on with this shrub? Planted a year and a half ago and doing great up until the past couple weeks, has grown quite a bit this spring.

Well it looks like some kind of wilt or blight. Crispy leaves then the ones next to it are fine. Shrug!
Will any ol fungicide work then?

Disease, would affect whole plant, i do belive. So !!!
I really suspect sunburn. Does it get hot afternoon sun ? How hot is it ? Have you recently had a sudden temp upswing ? Also could be fertilizer burn, if it got to much/strong dose.
Please. Answer all questions.
Thanks.

no fertilizer, but my soil is good and they only been here 1 yr.
Full sun, but we haven't had anything over 90 yet and it is only in spots on the plant, wouldn't sun burn be the whole thing? no sudden temp changes, still been cool at nights. lots of rain this year.

I dont believe its sun burn, mine is in full sun, it looks like some type of fungus, the first thing I would do is cut off all the bad leaves and throw them in the garbage and then see if it shows up again. Other members might have a answer for you. Good Luck

It appears to be growing out of whatever it is. Interesting that the bad leaves are in the middle of the plant. Perhaps it got a whiff of a herbicide or some other chemical. New leaves look great.

To be extra safe. Dip shears in bleach water, between each cut.
