Does the tree/bush need to stay on the balcony all year, or can it come in for winter?

Well, my intention is to let it stay out all the time. It needs to be a plant that can cope with my climate and with a not too much dense foliage to prevent too much shade.
Although I was not considering it but the best option seems to be a small olive tree or a Cistus. The latter could be collected on the wild but I'm sure it won't survive.

What about a rose bush? There are miniature varieties that will be happy in a pot. And you get flowers as a bonus.

A rose bush is a good idea but I was considering, mainly, native species.
I'll have to see which more can be an option.

Cistus are easy from seed. They are considered invasive in California.

There are also a lot of winter-rainfall and opportunistic rainfall Lampranthus and Ruschia that grow as shrubs. They will tolerate your frosts. These are in the same family as ice plant and living stones, and they have amazing flowers. They are very easy from seed sown in autumn. You can find seed from African sources.

If you can find one, a Ceanothus would also be nice. This is a genus of small to large shrubs native mostly to California with beautiful clusters of blue flowers.

Maybe this time it will go all the way through the bloom...

That looks very good! From the leaf color, it appears that it is getting the light that it wants. Now comes the wait... because if it does go all the way, it will be some time between October and January or February that it blooms. It teases you with lengthening spike and tightly-closed buds in a bundle for months and months.
