WISTERIA

I planted this Wisteria tree about 17 years ago on Mother's Day. I remember my grandmothers wisteria in Montgomery, Alabama and always wanted one.

They finally came out with a plant that could take the Ohio winters.

Every 3rd year, it blooms like this.

 It fills the air with a  grape aroma.

It gives cooling shade in the hottest time of the year.

I think Wisteria's are beautiful.  I didn't realize they had a grape aroma.

Mary Lou, what a beautiful tree. I love the smell of them. Is it normal that they only bloom every third year?

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL TREE!!  I love Wisteria's & have rarely seen them here in NY.
I rmember once on LI where a friend of the family had one in his Japanese garden, i think...; ) It was so long ago.  You do get Blooms every year, right?
Lovely Spring entry!

I grew up near the Wisteria in Sierra Madre, CA = I just loved those gardens and the house attached to it.  I has been a historical landmark for years and now the property is being sold.  It breaks my heart.  Yours is just beautiful!  Blessings, Penny http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/FromHeretoThere
