I have had this plant for over 7 years and it has been a struggle to get it to bloom. I chose this variety because it could withstand shade. It grows up the side of the house and is trained over a framework along the 2nd story balcony. Although it provides lovely shade and privacy, it remains stubborn in the blooming department.
It was in a large pot for about 4 years and it never bloomed. Then I carefully transplanted it into the ground exactly under where the pot was (no small feat!). And then I followed Christopher Brickell’s pruning directions for early August and again in December/January. It finally bloomed the last 2 summers! Well technically one bloom in 2008 and 3 blooms in 2009.
The photo is from 2009 and you can barely see the flower. Contrary to the description that came with the wisteria, it leafs out first then sets the flower panicle.
