Camptotheca accuminata after a warm winter
I don't think anyone was in much doubt, but if they had been, this winter would likely have convinced them that this plant is in a place that's a bit too cold for it. Every winter it suffers dieback from 25% -33%. Except this winter there's essentially no dieback. Which makes me happy because I love the foliage.
