Wisteria on split-rail fence

Posted by mwhidden 5b (My Page) on

Does anyone have any advice on whether or not I could grow and train a wisteria (perhaps Blue Moon or Lavender Falls) along a split-rail fence about 3.5 feet tall and 20 feet long in full sun?

Is the fence too low for wisteria?

Are those varieties fragrant?

Would I expect blooms the first year after transplanting a whole plant from a 1 gallon container?

I've trained a trumpet vine along a similar fence, and had considered doing the same with wisteria. The primary downside is getting to your neighbor's side of the fence to trim and train :-)
