American wisteria spurs - ? for arctictropical... or anyone....
.... with a flowering Wisteria frutescens or Wisteria macrostachya.
At one point earlier this year I enquired of arctictropical whether her/(his?) Blue Moon produced flowering spurs along the branches. I am convinced they must be there and am curious about what they look like. There is some difference between their appearance on Chinese vs Japanese wisterias so I'm curious about the American types. Now is a good time to look for them as the leaves have dropped.
So, artictropical, or anyone who has a flowering American type wisteria, I'd really appreciate it if you could look for spur growths and post a picture of any you find. I did a Google search today and, for the first time, found a picture of one! (see link) The spur in that picture is a much smaller, more delicate-looking thing than either the Chinese or Japanese ones. That might reflect the different growth habits of the American ones vs the Asian ones. So it'd be very interesting to see if the linked picture is the common appearance of spurs on American witeria.
