Wisteria macrostachya 'Blue Moon' -- what was I thinking?
Hi, (this is cross posted from "vines" which doesn't seem to be too active.)
Just received my Wisteria macrostachya 'Blue Moon' from Wayside Gardens, and am wondering what I was thinking now that I've learned about the potential size of wisterias. I was planning to grow it along a front post of the front entryway (a sturdy 3 foot porch overhang, rising to just below the second story) but am concerned it will take over the structure.
My other option is along the wall of our 1920s garage (a structure not used for cars anymore.) Will it need to be staked to climb a wall? Other parts of the gardens or fences are too shady.
Thanks for any ideas..... I'm feeling paranoid about planting it where it can take over the world--or at least my world.
