Schip Laurel

Asked May 6, 2019, 1:32 PM EDT

I have included a picture. After our winter in Ohio I noticed some of the leaves on the Schip Laurel Shrub-hedge I planted last fall have turned brown. Some totally brown and others just partly. When I touch the brown ones they crumble. The green leaves look healthy with flowering buds. Would you please give me your opinion as to why this is happening. Thank you
