WIS­TE­RIA SI­NEN­SIS

South African Garden and Home - - Fragrant Climbers -

One of the most pop­u­lar fra­grant climbers, wis­te­ria should be pruned ev­ery year in De­cem­ber and again in win­ter (July). How­ever, if pruned too se­verely, it won’t f lower the next sea­son or two. If it hasn’t been pruned in many years, only cut back branches half­way the first year and do the same for the next 2–3 years un­til there are branches with 2–3 buds. Wis­te­ria is de­cid­u­ous and bears f low­ers on al­most bare branches.
