Spring planting: Wonderful wisteria

Classic Vines Add Fragrance, Color and Romance to Garden Designs

Every spring, I see wisteria blooming on fences and pergolas, and every spring it surprises me all over again. Its twining vines have an ancient freeform look, and those clouds of blossoms add romance to backyard hangouts. Get ready — young plants will be showing up in nurseries in March. Plant as soon as your ground can be worked to give roots time to get settled before summer. Then stand back; your wisteria will be surprising you every spring, too.
