Took some pictures of my wisteria last night. The sky is to bright during the day to get a good picture.

Ah Wisteria, the plant from hell. I know, I've been trying to train one for years. It seems to have a habit of popping up someplace I didn't expect.

Pretty! (maybe use your strobe in the daytime as a fill-flash?!?)

How unusual. Wisteria get huge around here.

In Kentucky it was the purple mist of early spring in the woods . In Alabama the wisteria vines had their own delicate purple haze that reached to the tops of trees. Love them

I remember planting them on the back fence in the Houston area, lots of heat and water, they would grow 1-2 feet a day,completely covered my back fence(150 feet) in two years. I loved the grape like structure of the flowers, Yours look wonderful.

I especially love the smell of the flowers! It does grow quickly and I am pruning it all summer long to keep it in check.

@Redheadedgammy I never knwq which one grew faster, the wisteria or the okra, I did know the okra required much quicker attention.

@glennlab Okra is another fast grower. I never acquired a taste for it so have never grown it myself.

@Redheadedgammy I grew up in La. so that was one of the summer vegatable on your plate,you ate it. After enough years, you kind of grow a taste for it. I always over planted it, like green beans and squash. It dries well and freezes well.I was much younger then and it was quantity over quality

That is the way I always imagine wisteria - flowers hanging from a pergola. Very pretty

Wonderful trellis for the wisteria .

Cast1es Level 8 Mar 24, 2019

My husband built the pergola two years ago before he started feeling so bad. I love it so much because he built it just for me to be able to sit out on the deck without roasting in the hot Texas sun.

One of the prettiest flowers around here. I lived at a house where there was white wisteria. Wish I still had a picture of it. There's lots of wooded areas around where I live now and lots of purple wisteria.

Yeah
Very invasive

@Zoohome Yes, it can be unless you stay on top of it with pruning, which I do all summer long.

@Redheadedgammy I keep debating if I start one in my yard. Not sure I have the discipline of controlling it.
But you also have a native one, correct?

@Zoohome The two I bought said they were native to this area. I don't have the tag any longer so don't know the name of these two.

@Redheadedgammy , I got a start from my grandmothers. It wasn't nearly as invasive as the ones I've seen from the nurseries.

@freeofgod Some varieties are not as invasive as others. I wish I had saved my tags now so I'd know which one I have. I just remember it said, it was a native plant. Sometimes those we get from older plants are the best ones!!!

Beautiful!

Heidi68 Level 8 Mar 24, 2019

They really are pretty this year. Two year old plants.

@Redheadedgammy they grew everywhere when I was growing up. I miss seeing them. I had planted some when I was in OK. but I don't have any here [yet].

@Heidi68 Well, N. Carolina should have the perfect weather for them. I hope you get a plant soon, and enjoy the wonderful fragrance.

That's great! Yours are ahead of mine.

AstralSmoke Level 8 Mar 24, 2019

Yes and the bees are enjoying it immensely! Love to hear their little buzzing. ?

Wisteria is amazingly beautiful. I wish I had it in my garden.

Agnieszka Level 7 Mar 24, 2019

It smells so nice as well. I sit out on the deck every morning to drink my coffee and enjoy the smell.?

@Redheadedgammy I envy you smile002.gif I saw wisteria in Italy and fell in love instantly with its beauty.

That is a great pergola and a lovely wisteria. I am very partial to "hanging down" plants ( my daughters' names for wisteria and golden rain trees.

Spinliesel Level 8 Mar 24, 2019

My grand daughter asked me if they were grapes. LOL Does kind of look like grapes.
