As i have said many times i have lived in this house for many years and planted this wisteria around the mid 1970s never thought it would grow like this First two pictures where it starts coming out of the ground then it goes up and over into to neighbouring gardens they don’t complain,!


Looks almost Prehistoric


On up


Now over the fence whats left of it in to my neighbours garden


still trespassing. lol


Now back into my garden


My garden


Now this what we see from our back door


It has grown up from the lower garden and is dropping down over the Hawthorn into another adjoining property to complicated to explain further


At its best today hope you enjoy.PS the first flowers opened on the Pink Wisteria today

Its a giant and a beautiful one at that do you prune this, Love the twisted trunk mine twists too but no where as big as this and never has it flowered now in 14 years this year. I shall look forward to seeing your pink one great that too is flowering.

How fascinating, just beautiful. Does it flower consistently every year?

Fantastic. I had no idea they could get like that.

That's just gorgeous! As Grandmage says, the perfume must be intoxicating! It looks pretty intoxicating as well, the trunk is like a giant bonsai, and the acres of flowers are just magnificent!

Lovely...
do you trim it at all, or just let it do its own thing ?

it looks beautiful i'm looking to get one of those but they seem quite expensive (worth it im sure) but im on a very tight budget. i'll just have to look at your pics instead. lucky you im jealous....

I think you should start charging the neighbours!

Do your neighbours prune their bits? or do you have to go round there?

Wagger don't start me off, the part that goes over the fence no problem, the house where it goes over the hawthorn is another matter, all I will say is that the guy runs? a nursery, and his garden is a tip.I will say no more.

Hchristy, I would say if you are on a tight budget, spend your money on something that will flower in less than 10 years!! I've had mine both for five and not a sign of a flower on either of them! One day.....sigh! Bjs, this is stunning....like everyone else, I can just imagine the scent!

i think i'll wait till its my birthday to get one i tend to ask for plants that cost more than i would usually pay. but i have a long time to wait lol as its in april.

Ooooops!!!!!

That's a good idea Hchristy. I noticed today that my small one that I have in a pot was £12.99 which is not too bad I guess, but I wonder how old it will be before it flowers!!
