Wisteria – Late March in Texas

Wisteria in Texas can withstand the extreme heat, though they are heavy feeders, and need room to grow.  In most instances you will find yourself pruning these vigorous, twining vines.  Their vines can become massive with charming, broad twisted, woody trunk several inches in diameter. Plants that are grafted, and plants grown from cuttings or layered from a flowering plant will usually begin flowering earlier than seedlings.

Providing a sturdy trellis as in the image below will allow you to train and control your wisteria.  Wisteria blooms with redbud trees and make a lovely combination.
