Re: Re: Wisteria question


Maybe not an OW tale. Plant kingdom is full of goofy stuff like that. Desert Rose grows easily from cuttings but won't form that distinctive caudex unless it's grown from seed--which is why most are grafted, good color on seedling stock.

I read somewhere that seed-grown Wisteria may fail to ever bloom, that one should make sure that the plant is cutting-propagated. May be an old gardeners tale, but I got tired of waiting for mine and replaced it with a rambling rose.

We do that every year, for the past 6 years, at least. Is there such a
thing as non-blooming wisteria? Had to go out and wack at it again, it was
climbing every tree.
Hi Noreen,

I read somewhere that a wisteria needs to be at least seven years old
before it will bloom. Is it an old one, or a young one?
