Changes in this shrub began 7 to 10 days ago; yellowed leaves on the ground caught my attention. Please see photos. Thank you.
It is likely the euonymus scale, which is prevalent in euonymus shrubs.
I have been looking for a sunspot euonymus that I have used in the past with success. I haven't been able to find any for sale. However, the manhattan euonymus seems somewhat similar. Has anyone had experience with either or both varieties?
Other than having much less variegation, it is quite similar. I would say that you could use them, interchangeably. Manhattan will be just a bit taller.
I planted a row of Sunspot Euonymus about 10 years ago and they turned out well. I would like to plant some more for the Fall but can't seem to find anyone who sells them. Does anyone have information on who might sell them? If not, I will go with the Manhattan Euonymus which a helpful comment on this site noted some similarities. Thank you.
Unfortunately, we do not recommend specific places for purchase. If you cannot find them, locally, many online gardneing centers will ship to just about anywhere. Myself, I do not have a particular vendor that I use. Typically, I will go for whoever has the best mix of quality and price!
Three of our 9 euonymus bushes are losing leaves on top branches. They turn brown and then drop, leaving bare branches. No obvious signs on them to indicate what is causing. There is spotting around edges of some leaves.
This could be crown gall going on. Also, it's hard to tell in the photo, but that might be scale on the stem in the last photo.
This info should help:

I would agree! That looks to be Euonymus fortunei.
I purchased a golden euonymus I want to put it in a pot in my front yard where there is plenty of sun. I am in zone 9. oil. I want to find a large pot in which to grow it. Will it easily outgrow any pot I put it in. How can I learn to prune it properly? Would it be appropriate to grow it in succulent soil. Is there anything else I need to know that is specific to this plant?
Make sure the pot has drainage holes. If not, you can add them. You can use regular potting soil. The plant will probably outgrow the container but you can always upsize. They can be pruned or sheared to shape it or control the size. Just trim it to your liking. Here is more on their care:
