Anticipation...... a good wisteria year...!
The cold, dry winter and cold wet spring seems to have had no negative effects on our wisterias. In a few days, there should be a big show going on in the front garden! Here's what things looked like this morning:
The young Japanese wisteria 'Lawrence' bloomed for the first time last spring so we were hoping for a bigger and better show this spring. It looks like that's going to happen. The leaves are just starting to emerge now:
And there are a nice collection of flowerbuds too:
The Chinese wisteria is loaded with flowerbuds, some of which are starting to show color so I expect it should be in full bloom in about two days - just when we're forecast to have several days of rain so flower-viewing could be a damp activity! :-(
