    Could we see the whole plant? I am thinking box with blight.

    Do the flowers belong  to  the shrub? They look like the gone over flowers of some of my small azaleas.

    I thought box has really small leaves.

    You could be right there,weedy,  although I thought the red bits were leaves. There may be a rhodo to the right of the bottom photo.

    Could the first one be Escallonia?

    1 and 2.. Look like very healthy evergreen, small leaved Azalea.

    Like all evergreens the leaves will eventually die and drop off...which is what the red leaves are doing.

    All perfectly normal.
