Deforming and curling leaves on my daphne plant
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.
