This is a lilac bush. The plant seems to be healthy but as you can see the majority of the leaves are curled up. The plant had been properly watered and has had light fertilizer.
The plant gets full sun.

As recommended by Pike I sprayed Bayer Advanced Insect, Disease and Mite Control.
Sprayed top of leaf and bottom of leaf. There are no leaf miners. Had problem with leaf miners last year but got rid of them with insect spray.

    Check your sun/shade requirements.

    this looks like chemical injury to me
    did you use the hose end sprayer or the concentrate made for your own sprayer?

    I used Miracle Grow several weeks ago but I thought that product was supposed to be fool proof
