Well I am no expert but since no one answered, I will do so. I have propagated daphne, I cannot remember what time of year it was. I do remember I used sand and perlite and they did root. I would say try it and the worst that can happen is it will not root. I was told later that daphne was hard to strike cuttings with but I did it before I heard that and did not find it difficult.

Try it, nothing to lose but a bit of time.

Paul, the fall season is the perfect time to root Daphne.

I'd take cuttings where the new (green) wood meets the older (brown) wood. Use a rooting hormone of your choice and for quicker rooting keep your cuttings either on a heat mat, top of a water heater, refrigerator, etc in partial light. Perhaps you know this already so I won't go into detail.
