Vigorous evergreen tree with fine silver-green leaves, masses of yellow flowers late winter. From a tree in Bremerton, WA. 15 °F. This tree in Bremerton is the largest Acacia in Washington that I know of. I'm not sure how long it has been there, but it obviously lived through the freeze of December 1998 as well as January 2004, with temperatures in the teens. It makes a spectacular show of fragrant late winter flowers; unfortunately it was severely pruned just before I took a photo.
