    The last one is wych elm Ulmus glabra. I have several plants from seeds that each year winds blow into my garden from I have no idea where. It must be somewhere near, but I have never found the parent tree, which makes me suspect it is in someone’s garden where I cannot come close enough. I am good at recognizing tree species from afar, but unfortunately I do not have too much experience with wych elms, since it is not very common here, and those individuals that I have seen looked very similar to smaller specimens of very common baswood Tilia cordata from afar.

    This is the first time I noticed this peculiar discoloration on the leaves. I am currently growing hedge from hornbeam Carpinus betulus which have shown very similar pattern this year, but unfortunately I did not manage to make a picture of those.
