Don't think so .Under a 10 power scope , there was no sign of any insects , or any scarring at all . There are seven plants along the driveway and all of them show the curled and wrinkled leaves . Is there some desease that can cause it ?

Is it something that's just happened recently, or have they always been like that? If always, then maybe it is a cultivar selected for twisted leaves (like a "privet equivalent" of the holly cultivar Ilex aquifolium 'Crispa').
