Wisteria Hysteria

As a result of a relitively mild winter, my high/low thermometer read only -15C, plants that form their buds in the fall were profuse in blooming during this long and gentle spring. The Wisteria in the picture is of a client's in the Annex of Toronto. It has been well pruned over the years and in march I gave a good pruning to create finger branching off the main stems with 5 or so buds remaining, less if the buds look slender and not plump flowering buds. Viola!!!!! a flabulous show of petal power cascading down like a violet Niagara Falls. The scent is also a heavenly one wafting through the spring air. Enjoy..........
