Help for my wisteria!!!
I planted wisteria 15 years ago and have yet to see a single bloom! The foliage grows profusely--anywhere and everywhere it chooses--but I am still waiting for that first bloom!! I have heard that wisteria can take quite a few years to bloom, but I'm afraid I won't live long enough to see it! HELP!

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. Wisteria, especially plants grown from seed, are notiorious for taking a long time to bloom. If it's a question of maturity, I'm really sorry, but all I can say is try to have patience.

 

In the meantime, do be sure your wisteria is in full sun (shade can prevent it from blooming) and is in well-drained soil. Don't be afraid to let it be on the dry side as moist, rich soil can encourage lots of rampant leafy growth at the expense of flowers.
