It could be environmental or fungal issue.
Has it been excessively damp or rainy? Or hot, dry?

If it is dry I would add some water to the shrub. Mulching can help with moisture retention. 2 to 3 inches of hardwood mulch.
If the plant is sitting in soggy soil it can lead to root rot.

You may want to treat the plant with Neem OIl. This works as both an insecticide and fungicide.
