American Wisteria I Love You!
The first two weeks of May my two American wisteria vines that frame my swing arbor were in full bloom with sweet purple blossoms about 4-5 inches long. In June I trimmed the vines and hosed down the spent brown blossoms.
Then faster than you can catch two wild rabbits on a mating romp those two vines sent out many more new shoots and a second round of blossoms. This time the blossoms were smaller. Just two inches long but still very pretty. I like how puffy and green the arbor gets in the summertime as it grows and grows and grows.
