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.

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

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

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

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…

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

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.
