Sudden. Unexpected. Delightful. These words all describe the blooming of our long-dormant wisteria vines.
Sanja planted this vine in 2002. Every spring since then, though we waited and hoped, the vine yielded nothing more than leaves. So, fellow gardeners, take heart: if your wisteria is not flowering, perhaps a wonderful surprise lies just around the corner. Here is our reward for ten years of waiting!
The soft-hued flowers hang together in clusters, bewitching against the brilliant light and electric blue of the spring sky.
A plant this gorgeous and aromatic is well worth the time it takes to mature. If your purple wisteria isn’t putting on a show yet, you’re welcome to come see–and smell–ours! And if stopping to smell the flowers just doesn’t fit into your busy schedule, maybe you can catch a glimpse as you drive by on Highway 6.
