I must have posted a pic of this tree last spring, so here's the 2017 update. The photo (fighting with glare from the sky...apologies) was taken a couple weeks back when this wattle was in full bloom...what a wonderful microclimate this James Bay neighbourhood of Victoria has! No winter damage at all was visible.

On even a short walk in this area, the gardens reveal far more interesting variety of plants than I see almost anywhere else...pittosporums, olearias, tons of hardy cyclamens...and I'm sure lots more that I didn't notice or ID.
