The Q&A Archives: Japanese Wisteria

Question: We have had a Japanese Wisteria that we planted about 6 years ago & it never blooms. The plant/tree itself has gotten very large & we do trim it back several times during the growing season. What can we do to get it to bloom? Thanks.

Answer: First of all make sure you are not overfertilizing. Next, if you are truly frustrated, you can try "root pruning" by cutting deeply with a sharp spade on just one side of the vine. This may stress it and stimulate it to bloom. Alternatively, there is always patience. Maybe this will be the year!
