This photo and your other Wisteria photo were fabulous! I already have a monster Wisteria in my garden, but this makes me want a second one near my front porch.

Thanks Zuzu,
Black Dragon is a good one for a porch, or close to windows as it doesn't set seed (which you probably know can explode). It may be synonymous with 'Violacea Plena'. (or is it Plena Violacea? Blinking )
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

That wisteria is so beautiful! It must be wonderful to sit and look at it. I'll have to look it up but I'm guessing it wouldn't do well where we live now.

Thank-you all...
Lots of pruning involved... and I've got 3.

Karen, @plantmanager I think they're hardy to zone 5.

I had no idea! I may have to look into getting one if I can figure out a strong enough support for one.
Thank You!

Haha, yes! You need strong support. I saw one grown on an old metal swingset once..

That would be great, but unfortunately we got rid of our swingset about 40 years ago! Sad
