Bush with leaves wasting away

kmerrifiMay 22, 2010

We are pretty new to PA and have a bunch of one type of bushes in the yard that look like they are in trouble. The leaves have a lacy appearance like bugs ate them to pieces, but it is all over all of these bushes and not on any other type of plants. I have not seen any bugs on these bushes. They are in real trouble because all of the leaves are being destroyed. Does anyone know what is going on with these bushes? Bug damage? Fungus?

Thank you.

Do you know what type of bushes they are? If there is a way for you to post pictures, please do. That would be very helpful. If you can't do that, give us a description of the shrub...size, color, flower description, is it in sun or shade, etc.

Are you sure it's not frost damage?

Have you ever seen Azalea lace bugs? You may want to google it and see if this matches your problem.

Sorry, I did not get notified that this post was answered. I will get a picture today. I will also google Azalea lace bugs to see if that is the problem. I don't think it is frost damage, but it could be. It will be easer when I get a picture up for you to see.

Thank you for your responses.

Here is a picture. The leaves are almost gone from this plant.

Sorry, forgot to add. The shrubs are approximately 5-6 feet tall. The leaves (as you see in the picture) are toothed and crinkly like a ruffles potato chip.
