Curled up leaves on little leaf Linden

Not sure if this is species related, got several growing from
seeds, started over 20 years ago. ONLY this one has this, some others grow only several feet away and don't have it.

Been noticing for several years now and doesn't seem to be a problem for the tree,..kind of like the difference from the others.
Have you seen this?

Is it on the border of your property Konrad, it looks like chemical spray drifted on to it. Have not seen that on any trees that I can remember.

konrad...somewhat your honey bees work all your linden trees? If so, what is the honey like? And do the bees prefer it to legumes and canola?

RE: Curled up leaves on little leaf Linden

Might just be in the genetic make up of the tree to produce this unusual cupped foliage

RE: Curled up leaves on little leaf Linden

Thank you all!
Wayne, no, its in the middle of the nursery,...been getting this same thing for several years now. Or, I look at it more closely.

That's the idea,..trees still too small for honey bees to be interest in,.. at least another 5 or 10 years away,... they focus on the large crop, right now it's clover, ..I'm too far away for Canola fields,..thanks god.

Blossoms fully open now,..mostly wasp and bumbles feasting on it, only seen ONE honeybee, rather disappointing,..smells soooo...nice!
