With hopes of not letting the winter 'blah's get the best of me I have been researching new ideas for this years planting time and reviewing photos from my gardens past. During the time I have been spending looking through my photos I came across this photo I took late spring last year. I have always wondered what this 'crazy grower' maybe. I am posting this in search of my garden friends opinion. When I look up Wisteria the description found on the webpage fits the plant. However the flowers they show are different then the ones on mine. It could be a different variety??!! I do know this 'creature' was going NUTS along side our 1/2 acre pond when the second year we lived here hubby took a chainsaw to it because it had over taken so much space. The next spring it was blooming beautifully and the growth was amazing in one season.
DescriptionThis Japanese cultivator dates back to the 1870s. Now rarely seen, this vigorous wisteria selection bears extraordinary double purple flowers clustered on fluffy racemes. The fragrance: head-spinning, delicious. In autumn, its foliage is brilliant yellow and gratifying. Provide a sturdy trellis or pole on which it can twine. Plant in average soil where there's at least a half-day of sun, and watch it grow and glow.
Hope you can put your two cents in and comment on what you think this maybe?
Happy Friday - from my frozen garden in the Midwest.
