Posy Palette: Wisteria

Wonderful Wisteria

Wonderful Wisteria

The strangest thing has happened to our wisteria…  After ten years of no blooms, it’s finally decided to blossom!  We always thought that the landscaper made a mistake and planted the non-flowering variety (if there is such a thing) and gave up on ever seeing the lovely purple-hued petals dripping from the vine.  The plant, on the other hand, has thrived and has taken over our second floor deck, reaching its tendrils from the south side of the house to the west.  And now that the plant is getting full sun, it’s covered in blooms.  That’s because wisteria needs full sun to bloom…  Duh!

So needless to say, we’re enjoying our wisteria blossoms and looking for a new landscaper!

    Wow how excited you must have been! I love wisteria but have never heard of it not blooming for 10 years, amazing how nature works (on its own time clock apparently)! Enjoy it…its just beautiful.

    Your Wisteria are so pretty! We had them in our prior home and will be including them in our landscape plan at our new place. Once you find their happy place;) they go crazy. We had a drainage problem with our last Wisteria and it took a while to work that out. Hope you are enjoying the spring sunshine! xxleslie
