I have mine planted where I can mow off any unwanted shoots. But, first I hope it makes it through the winter. I'm thinking it will...........it was a Monrovia 6 footer when I bought it and grew good after I planted it. It's "climbing" on a cattle panel, and after next spring my pergola will be built and I'll have plastic coated wire panels on the top of it for it to climb on.

I also mulched it good with a couple of bags of mulch.

Oh, and I am employing the same with my trumpet vine...........it's planted where I can mow off the unwanted shoots.

Wisteria shrinks as it grows and tends to pull down all but the stoutest of supports.

Anna.....you may mow off shoots but they will just keep coming. I removed a Wisteria Tree several years ago and am still fighting shoots coming up in a large bed of established perennials.......it has turned into a noxious weed. Thumbs down

There are different types of Wisteria. I don't think they are all that aggressive.

Also what is invasive in a suburban lot measured in square feet may be no problem on a farm measured in acres.
