    My guess is it's a Physocarpus "Diablo"  :)

    And the disease is Scale insect, possibly Brown Scale:
    The shrub doesn't look to big to manually clear them by scraping them off using a soft plastic spatula or stiff brush.  A bucket of slightly soapy water helps and you might want to wear gloves as their removal makes a rather sticky mess!

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
