    Is my shrub dead?

    It's been this way for some time. Would a fertilizer spike help any?

    No......Don't fertilize. Give some mulch and don't overwater. Water if soil gets dry. As long as there's green there's hope.

    Pretty much has a sandy soil here and it doesn't retain moisture that well. Maybe I'll give some mulch a try.

    Looks like leaf miner or something else going on.

    If so, fertilizer may help bring about new foliage which it could definitely use, but you gotta do something about the bugs.
