My grandmother always had Wisteria. She would prune it to grow into a tree, looked like a Weeping Willow.
I'm trying to do that with mine since this dwarf isn't as invasive as some. I have it growing on an arbor and I let a shoot run to the end of the patio and started pruning it into a tree for the last 3 years.

Thank you!
It can surely be invasive! You have to keep an eye on it. This is not the kind I grew up with! It is less invasive but can get out of control fast if not pruned regularly during growing season.

Wisterias are beautiful. They can grow here in our Zone 5 area but rarely bloom. Enjoy training yours!

Connie, I luv your wisteria ’tree’..
I had one growing up on a stucco wall,, in be knownst to me how invasive it can be!
But it was beautiful. Unfortunately I had to have it removed due to the damage it caused… I ended up planting a huge hydrangea bush.

But, I will have to see if wisteria is zone 4a friendly, I have several locations here (away from the house) that I could plant one.
Hmmm, thinking, thinking…

That looks great, Connie. The purple is very beautiful. I hope it turns out exactly like you want it.

Good luck it reminds me of a lilac sort of. I have never seen wisteria in person.

That Wisteria is just beautiful for your backyard. The color is so rich and I know the fragrance is lovely too.
