Inside the curled-closed leaf is a spicebush caterpillar; it lives in there after sealing it up and goes from a crazy looking critter to a beautiful butterfly.

 

I planted two of the bushes years ago and the deer have kept them trimmed.  Finally, they're gaining some size and hosting plenty caterpillars.  Seems like a good plant to have for wildlife and that's how it was sold by the Shiawassee County Conservation folks.

 

I posted pictures of the caterpillar years ago - back in the Stonegod days - and, we had a little fun with it then.
