Q.Why is one of my Euonymus bushes doing more poorly than others next to it?

The Euonymus bush has brown edge on the leaves and hairy growth on the woody stems. I pruned it back and sprayed for insects. Should I remove the bush?

You could give it a little more time to see how it does with the insect spray. The hairy growth could just be aerial roots growing if it's a vining variety such as sarcoxie.

Scale is common among euonymus shrubs. Here is info on other possibilities.
