Acacia dealbata.
« on: March 29, 2015, 09:12:39 AM »
Have been having problems reducing my 'photos and with beautiful spring weather no time to waste . However I am hoping this morning I can successfully post a 'photo taken yesterday of my wonderful Acacia. It has been in bloom for several weeks and I am very proud of it. It was given to me as a small sucker by an MGS member quite a few years ago after I admired his large tree. For several years I kept it in a large pot fearing it would not survive our winters in open ground in my area.  It languished however and so finally I took the plunge and put it in a reasonably sheltered position. It grew at great speed and finally flowered last year but this year's display has been beyond all expectations. One really harsh winter may well see it off but I in the meantime I am enjoying it.
