I know nothing about it but have loved pictures of it over the years. I keep thinking this would look nice in my back yard.

Thanks for sharing Spider!
My brother gave me a dozen seeds off of his, so I'll be starting them for my plant sale!
From seed they can grow a good 4ft in their first year!
I will keep one to train into a standard (one trunk) and keep the top clipped in a bonsi shape!

My wisteria hasn't greened up yet. Each year it grows taller & blooms more:)

Your wisteria is beautiful Spider.

I found fuzzy buds on mine so maybe it will bloom this yr for the first time. i searched the net and it said buds were fuzzy so praying that is what they are. They are about an inch or so long now, how big do they get? I have never seen a bud, only blooms

Ron,there is a house not to far from me that has trained one in the bonsi shape. It's around 31/2 to 4ft tall and about 25ft around. It is huge and the blooms hang to the ground. It is gorgeous when in bloom.

I bet they are always out there pruning and clipping it to keep the shape!
I bet it is gorgous!
The things we do to create a perfect specimen just for a few short week of blooms!
