Wisteria Vines - A Special Display of Landscaping Beauty
One of the most glorious sights of early summer is a wisteria vine dripping with long racemes of fragrant purple or white flowers. Planted in the proper spot, a wisteria vine is a display of beauty and provides not only eye catching color but the shade from the intertwined leaves can make a cool place to sit during the hot summers.
Wisterias from America were the first varieties to be introduced to Europe and were named for a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Caspar Wistar, in 1818. Wisterias had been grown in China and Japan for many centuries and it was not untile the Orient opened its borders in the mid 1800s that these beautiful vines were introduced to the rest of the world.
Wisterias can be trained over arbors, pergolas, along walls and fences and as a single specimen tree. They need to be pruned with a firm hand to encourage blooms and prevent rampant growth. Pruning advice is available at your local garden cener. Among some of the varietes that can be found in nurseries are:
