What's troubling my Daphne odora?

Brisbane, CA(Zone 10b)

Could someone please help me diagnose what's troubling my Dephne? The leaves are slowly yellowing with green spots on them, then the leaves fall off. The new leaves seem lighter in color and kind of curly. i planted it in a 15-gallon fabric pot about a month ago. Took great care not to disturb the root at all. The 2 other Daphne ('Carol Mackie' and 'Somerset') I planted in similar pots seem to do just fine. They may have a bit more shelter than the odora though.
Thanks much in advance!

Much appreciate these links. I have moved the daphne to a more shelter location like the other 2 and spray it with aspirin+water mixture. I read that this mixture helps with virus problem.
