Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. Have you sprayed anything around your Daphne recently? Spray damage often looks like this.

 

Take a close look at your plant; do you see insects feeding off the new growth? A severe infestion of insects such as aphids can also cause new growth to be deformed. Remove the insects with a strong stream of water, insecticidal soap, or neem oil.

 

Viral diseases also cause new growth to come out looking funny. Unfortunately, there's no treatment for virus diseases.
