My wisteria bloom June 2012

Wisteria is a mysterious plant. I am not good about taking Before and After photographs, but above you can see my wisteria in early May last year.

Wisteria May 28, 2013

This is my wisteria yesterday. My husband and son cut out the main trunk which  was dead, leaving us with a young, lively trunk. There is another shoot coming up from the root that we will allow to  join this trunk.  I am glad it is not totally dead, and hope it will grow lushly and give us cooling summer shade.

I have written about my trials and triumphs before in 2012 when I had a great wisteria bloom season that actually has a photo of the main trunk, and in 2009.

    I checked out the link in 2009 and the Wisteria looked beautiful. It grows fast, so it will be back in no time. I also looked at the ajuga in the previous post. I love it weaving through the grass.

    It really was spectacular in 2006! Maybe next year 🙂

    You’ve had more luck with Wisteria than I have. Mine seems to be taking off a bit more the past couple of years, but it has never flowered–probably the lack of sunshine. I LOVE Wisteria.

    I find wisterias are mysterious, also. We have 3 planted. And only 1 is thriving. It has surpassed the others.

    I bet your Wisteria will come back just fine. I love the look of Wisteria but have never grown any! I think it grows in the wild here but not positive!

  6. It looks like a good clean up and I bet it will be back strong and beautiful
