After a season of planting and hoping and imagining and paying attention to getting the bones right – flowers at last! The Wisterias are blooming their beautiful brains out.
Eventually, once the vines reach the top of the pergolas I plan to prune away the leaves and flowers on the columns and have their stems be an added ‘column’. And I think, at the rate they are growing that they should reach the top of the pergolas this year.
But right now, Oh I am so enjoying the beautiful flowers. And leaves. I love the leaves of Wisterias. They are complex and geometric and would make a lovely vine even if they didn’t flower. The flowers however are unmatchable.
