difficult to support your dqphne Curvaceous Cook without it looking awful. You could contrive a raised cover but it is pretty wide shrub.
agree it best to leave it cope on its own. If there is a branch that looks esp fragile a large upturned pot could support it.
daphne odora well down here.......5' across and high is common.
As a matter of info a large odora in a friend's garden was damaged in the summer by a clumsy gardener who buried it under a big load of heavy shrub pruning. I carefully removed the prunings to find the daphne had half of its branches broken. however, half of it was unscathed and has recovered well. The point is heavy snow may damage your daphne but will prob recover. Try to knock off snow before it accumulates too much
