If the plant you describe is a red robin ( Photinia ), black spot quite a common problem, which can be caused by weather conditions or a fungus.Collect and dispose all fallen leaves, You can try a suitable fungicide in spring. I get this in my garden and it is something you have to put up with, some years the plant suffers much more than others.
