One day I will have wisteria...
How very lovely...Oh so jealous...
Will have one next year, after seeing your one in the pot. I have just the pot for it as well
Do they grow fast?
Thanks. Good to know. I've always wanted one. And Jacinta was gushing about yours in a pot in the Thai House. ;)
I am also looking for a nice Wisteria for my garden. It is so romantic....
What size pot do you grow it in Martin?
It is in the ground
Martin, if your Wisteria is in the ground, what is growing in the pot in front of it?
Martin beautiful what variety is that one? have a blue sinensis 'prolific' in a pot myself.
Really lovely. Had a white variety in my last house it took years to flower. Well worth the wait.
Not sure the variety. Put it in 15 years ago, cut holes in the path and put a few in. The troughs are just alpine ones, and one of them is sitting in front of a wisteria that has not come into flower yet. One in photo at front of house Jacinta along with my main lot of ferns, did I show you them?
My wisteria certainly won't fit in a pot. It is the full length of the house, 30 feet long, and coming in the upstairs windows. In flower this week, three weeks late, like everything else. See photos in my album from last year. Powerscourt garden pavilion has them for sale for €145. I bought mine from south side garden centre, now sadly gone, for about €10. It was a single stem, about ten inches long, and took several years to flower, and twenty years to reach it's present size. You had better get moving, Rachel, if you want it before your old age pension.
So you keep telling me, PCON!!! I think I have a few good years left in me yet : ) As you also know, Wisteria takes planning. A sturdy support is required as I could not plant it against my house.
Good news for all you wisteria fans. Irish Times advertising one for €19. They claim it will flower the second year. Of course you are right, Rachel. It does need planning and a strong support, like a high south wall, or even a tree.
This variety looks like W.floribunda 'Multijuga'
