I think the racemes are even longer

Bees love the white wisteria too! But not quite as much as the lilac one.

Just look at that sky

The white wisteria is on the pergola that covers the terrace on the east side of the house.  This is always later than Wisteria Prolific 1) because of its position and 2) because I think that white flowered varieties are often later of almost everything.

There are no ground floor windows on this side of the house so I haven’t been pruning this one as well as the one on the front of the house.

Sorry this isn’t wordless – but………

  1. Your Wisterias are both very beautiful Christina, there is a house in our village which has a White Wisteria across the frontage, but little sign of buds yet let alone flowers. Our skies are barely pastel, I hope we get to see one as blue as yours soon.

  2. Your white wisteria is spectacular. Is it as fragrant as the other? I see the purple one is still blooming. The wisteria in this area bloomed after yours and is already fading back.

    • Mine is also fading, or rather it is putting on foliage so doesn’t look quite as wonderful. The white smells different to the lilac and has less sun so the perfume isn’t as intense.

  3. Beautiful, Beautiful, Christina!! Makes my heart sing 🙂 I waited many years until my Chinese white flowered and it has continued since with its anticipation never dwindling. We are only in bud here (flowering at end of May beg of June) so plenty of time to tidy up the garden ready for the arrival of these very special blooms 😀

  4. It’s very pretty too! The Wisteria I tried to take out (in light of its inappropriate placement and thuggish behavior here) has reappeared (again).

    • If the new growth is coming from the roots, it may not even be the same as the flowering variety that is usually grafted. Wisteria do need severe pruning each year.

    • The white one is on the east, shady-ish side of the house; we don’t sit here very often and the wisteria is often not as good as it is damaged in winter; this year it is amazing!

  5. Christina que maravilla de Wisteria. También tiene una blanca! Nunca la había visto en blanco: es preciosa, magnífica. Tiene un jardín de cuento de lo bonito que es. Si todavía no ha visitado mi jardín campestre la dirección es https://margarita14111.wordpress.com/2016/04/13/mi-jardín-estropeado/ y si no aparece valla a donde está escrito varias veces “Mi Jardín Estropeado” y haga sobre uno de ellos haga clic con el ratón. Si no aparece, pruebe en otra de las frases. Después de ver mi jardín, amará mucho más su jardín. Saludos de Margarita. margarita141.
