    I agree with the mite problem. The second could be several things, but it looks like a water problem. Either not enough, or too much. Also, try a little food for it.
    One thing to consider with your evergreen shrubs, is that in many cases, they need additional acid to the soil. They will ALWAYS use additional acid when put next to a wall like that - walls and/or sidewalks. What happens is, as the lime from the concrete (foundation or walk) leaches into the soil, it raises the PH level, and decreases the acidity. This must be compensated to keep the plants at their peek optimum health potential.
