Q.Five Silver King Euonymus Losing Lots Of Leaves

Zone Toccoa, GA 30577 - Zone 8 | mylaw06 added on May 22, 2021 | Answered

Planted five silver king euonymus shrubs last October. The shrubs have full sun, and are watered regularly. I noticed many leaves dropping off the shrubs this Spring. We sprayed with Sevin twice in last 4 weeks, and provided them with some plant food. Plants have stayed about the same. They have many leaves on the ground, and some small buds (cream in color, although the photos show them in yellow). Any thoughts on why this is occurring? We live in Northeast Georgia, Zone 8.
