I love wisteria... I just had my first one yesterday!! :-)
I Love the colour :)) We have it in the front yard of our house, but I have no idea how to plant it._______________________________________http://maja-1.blogspot.com/
It is very pretty, but actually an invasive vine. If you do plant, make sure to keep it contained...plant so it cannot grow into other things.
Wisteria IS lovely. Just make sure that your support framework that it will grow on is extremely sturdy (metal is best) as it will take down weak structures (wood arbors, etc.) over time.
living in illinois, we only see a very occasional wisteria. i was once called to fly into charlotesville, va. to do a garden design. as we drove to her home i was absolutely astounded at the wisteria everywhere. she must of known from my gasping that i was enamored by this plant as she shouted 'don't get any ideas, this is a weed here!'debra
It is pretty, but in this part of the country (NC) we have to work really hard to keep it under control. It is VERY invasive and will take over everything if you're don't stay on top of it. Once it's established it's very hard to get rid of, so I just have to keep trimming it 4 or 5 times a year. I would never plant it on purpose! But it might not be that bad where you are?
that beautiful tree ... that beautiful plant .. I love it .. I put in my garden ...I have a big yard and I have that plant in my garden now!
How pretty, love that old twisted tree!!!
how fabulous! love the old stonework too.xox
It's beautiful, but if it's invasive...I'm staying away from it. I've been fighting wild morning glory for a few years now...so hard to get rid of! I do love all of the pictures you posted!
ohhhhhhhhhhh, my Godddddddddd!!!!!!!!!! :) Thanks so much!!!
Totally stunning, Megan. Love the second image of the dining area beneath that tree trunk example of Wisteria! M.
I keep seeing this. I would love to have some in our yard. Very pretty post.
....and it smells so much better than the catalog ;)
I have it dripping all over a backyard pergola & it's one of my very favorite things to bloom when the warmer weather hits! your photos are luscious! :) chris
Hi there Megan,There are different varietals when it comes to Wisteria. Most of the vines that you showed in your photos are the same type... and yup, they can be invasive...but so beautiful. Four years ago we planted an evergreen Wisteria over our front door arch. (didn't know there was such a thing) (we are in Dallas) It doesn't bloom when all of the other Wisteria bloom, but it blooms mid to late Summer and does so continuously. The blooms are a deeper purple and very fragrant.I would look into what your options are before planting. Have fun.Marybeth
My again. This is a link for the varietal we planted.http://www.magnoliagardensnursery.com/productdescrip/Milletia_Ever.htmlMarybeth
