Daphne Odora 'Aureomarginata'

Daphne odora aureomarginata is a very, very popular shrub.  

The situation sounds ok........a dose of epsom salts would help give a bit of a boost but I wouldnt over feed it.

The variegation varies from season to season so I wouldnt worry about that.  They flower early spring.....late winter down here. Buds should appear over the autumn.

Do you water it?  Bought last year amd we are having a long hot dry anyway. So a little drink now and then will help 

Why are my Conifers dying from the bottom up

They will be denied nutrients, water and my opinion. A hedge of all kinds will do same thing that's why, ideally, a hedge is trimmed wider at the base and tapered to the top.
