Things have slowed down a little here since the temps have gone down, but everything is still way ahead of normal.

My wisterias have tons of buds. Either I'm going to have very colorful gardens when the time comes or I am going to have nothing if we get a hard frost that will freeze off the buds of many plants and shrubs. In 2011 my wisterias were in full bloom around May 30th.

Here's what it looked like last year. This is the smallest of my four wisteria trees. Praying for no frost/hard freeze before then!

Here's my climbing hydrangea that is now hidden behind the dog kennel. I'm still second guessing moving the kennel from 60 feet behind the house to its new location next to our patio.

When we got our new pups in fall I decided the trek back to the kennel in winter and rain was getting more and more unpleasant the older I got. Any ideas on how to camoflauge the kennel somewhat? Tall plants, partial fencing? I want the dogs to still be able to see out so they don't get more destructive than they are. We only kennel them when we are at work.

So how are your wisteria trees doing? I bought a pink one several years ago. It did well with a little support and then after about 7 years died back (if you can believe it). NO more tree. But the base, probably just the root stock and some vines are still alive. I have not seen blooms for years and was ready to grub it out, but this spring I cleaned it up and maybe I can make a tree again.

An estate one planted at the same time requires lots of care to remain a tree but is huge! Maybe I take better care for clients than I do for my own place!

My wisterias came to me in a trade many, many years ago (probably ten to fifteen years ago) from someone in the central south if I remember correctly. They just started blooming a couple years ago and last year was the first year I had a large amount of blooms.

My favorite is this one, I hope it doesn't get frost bitten since it too has a ton of buds on it.

That is just so gorgeous Sandy!

And with no supports?

How'd you do that?

I am in love, all over again! Wisteria is my absolute most favorite flower!

That is really pretty! Every time I have been around wisteria, it is so FULL of bees that I don't want to be close to it. Sure is pretty and so graceful.

Sadly, all wisteria buds were frozen last week. The particular vine pictured above had to have over 1000 buds on it that are now mush. Sad Sad

Our normal wisteria bloom time is the second week in April. I would think yours would be around the second week in May. Everything just budded out too early this year. We were blessed. Our wisteria bloomed but I have had many years that it froze just like yours. Our wisteria bloomed in March this year and that's just way to early. Yours will be ok and you'll probably have a few blooms in about 3 weeks but nothing like the first bloom would have been.

I'm so sorry yours froze. It causes the heart to skip a beat when you see all those buds frozen.

Blessings, Mona

How very sad!!! The wisteria was so pretty. Is it invasive for you? Here the roots spread everywhere, sometimes on top of the ground, which can cause hazardous walking conditions. I know there are two types of wisteria. Maybe one is much more invasive than the other.

OH yeah!!! Invasive is a good word for the way it spreads. Tree form is the way to go if you don't want it to spread and then you must be faithful in keeping it trimmed. Since my whole yard is made up of a lot of invasives, it looks right at home but you must be careful walking. I told DH a month ago that we must get busy trimming back the wisteria before the house is covered in purple blooms!!!
