generally, you get a flush of flowers... and then leaves.
I used to have one that gave additional blooms during the off-season.but that was the exception, rather than the rule.

unfortunately, the chinese wisteria is so invasive and uncontrollable that its always a good idea to avoid planting them.

There are American ones that are less invasive.

That's ok, you can still keep it where you want it. Just takes a little more work. They do very well trellised or allowed to grow up a tree. That's they most are grown here. In the spring they are a glorious sight, they smell heavenly, and are full of bees.

If you allow them to climb trees... expect the trees to be strangled!

very bad news...

I used to have a blog post up that showed an entire woodlot covered in wisteria... you could see it, because it was all in bloom... eventually the tree tops die and the trees attempt to fall... being held up by those monster vines.

nothing kills them!

worse than kudzu!

Wow, they aren't that bad here. Just goes to show that what is merely pretty in one place is a menace in others! Thanks for the info, Stone. Thumbs up

maybe your winter holds them in check?

it's as bad as anything I can think of here...

kudzu is actually not that bad... doesn't grow in the shade... just out in the open... like along highway margins where we can see it.

wisteria grows anywhere, sending looooong runners that run along the surface of the ground... rooting everywhere it finds loose soil... and can not be dug out... where i've seen it poisoned? looked like it was laughing.

Kudzu is really bad here. Thumbs down One of my favorite plants to hate. I did have some wisteria that got into my yard from the neighbors.... cut and pull, cut and pull! Hilarious!

Like I said, it grows out in the open... where you see it...
kudzu? dig it out with a shovel once... nothing to it.

dig wisteria? dig it again in a month...

the fact that everyone sees the unmistakable leaves on the kudzu as they drive past... convinces many to think that it's a worse problem than it is.

yeah, it can cover a house... and maybe a slow moving car... but in my experience... wisteria is far and away much worse.
