The cultivar 'Caroline' is one of the best for repeat bloom beyond spring.

RE: wisteria

I don't know what cultivar this is, but it has a history. When my husband and I married we lived in a victorian with a huge wisteria over one whole side of the house. I gave a shoot to my mother who planted it in her garden where it did well. Then I airlayered a piece off of it and tried to make it into a bonsai probably 30 years ago. Finally 2 years ago I planted it in the garden and let it grow naturally except for my prunings. I was thrilled the first year it bloomed and last year and this - 3 times!!


RE: wisteria

Penny, we'd love to see photos of your Wisteria. I didn't realize it would repeat-bloom. I may rethink this as a vine for my new patio cover.
