23/7/2022 surprise #1 A new wisteria flower at least 2 months after it finished flowering, or so I thought!

@moore.794 Sorry to hear that, but it sounds like it tried to make up for it. Not sure why mine threw out this one single flower shoot now though. It had hundreds of flowers in the spring.

After waiting 4 years for it to flower, it turns out to be a white wisteria. I'm delighted, as I already have a blue/purple one & thought this one would be the same! 🙂

I had mine in a big tub & in a spot with little direct sun. I moved it 18 months or so, planted in the ground in a sunnier spot & it seems to have done the trick. Does yours get much sun Mel? @greenfinger14

Oh! I planted one of these last year (especially ‘needing’ it to be white!). It’s survived the winter 😀 but I need to know if there’s anything I should do now/in the autumn? It’s currently about 2’ high and very full/bushy.

Hi Zoe. They are 100% hardy, so cold winters are no problem. They like a sunny spot. At it's current size, just let it grow. No need to prune it yet for maybe a few years. You could train it over an arch or on a trellis against a wall for support. With luck it may flower next spring 🤞😊 @ZoeHayes
