Transplanting Wisteria

Posted by Reese_F 8 (My Page) on

I have two wisterias that are about 10 years old, each are planted in separate 20 gallon terracotta pots. I plan on planting both of them in-ground next to a pergola. Yes, they both flower.

Question: I like the look of twisted stems but since these were planted in separate pots they only have one main stem....not twisted. Can I physically twist these together before planting them next to the pergola?

Main Branch is about 1.5 inches in diameter...I was planning on trimming the tops to make it easier to twist them together.

This is the idea....

RE: Transplanting Wisteria

No, the stems are too mature and the wood already too hardened/stiffened for you to be able to braid them at this stage. This is attempted when the plants are just seedlings or they will do so naturally when two young seedlings are planted together in the same hole.

RE: Transplanting Wisteria

I see your point...I would hate to break the main branch twisting these together.

Thank you.
