Rose of sharon

This shrub is twenty yrs old and has always done very well, last year the leaves were very small yet still bloomed. We added fertilizer stakes in April and the new growth looks pretty good but I'm afraid that they still look small in comparison to the other ones in the yard. I've noticed lady bugs on the branches, could I have some insect that I can't see? If so what to use to spray?

Lady bugs may be helped you out with Aphids.
Treat the plant with Neem Oil.
