Name the plant

Re: Name the plant

Looks like an acacia (wattle) of some kind.

 

According to my Australian Natives book, it could be Acacia pycnantha - Australia's floral emblem.  Grows to 10m tall, grows fast in well drained soil.  The seeds are edible.  The flowers are very pretty.

Thank you so much @bluebec!

 

10 metres! It looks like a lovely tree but it's totally in the wrong spot. I will ask them to move it. Wish me luck!

That looks like Rock & Roll alstroemeria (Peruvian Lily).
