Fremontodendron (Californian Glory)

Does anyone have any experience with this plant? I have one in my front yard, it seemed to stop flowering after planting last year (I know it dislikes transplanting). Its made it through the winter and now it is absolutely covered in flower buds. I am a little worried I will lose the lot if we have a frost this weekend (seems to be a risk) as I know the plant is a little tender, and I guess even less likely to cope with late frosts. Its grown like crazy so I don't think fleece is an option. Does anyone have this plant and is it usually ok with a frost in mid-late April?



I have one, Weatherwise !
I've had it about 3 years and it comes through each winter with no trouble at all - (i'm in the west country though, so a bit further south than you) it has withstood everything the past 2 cold winters has thrown at it and it's not affected its growth any.
It's not been affected by late frosts either,
