Goringfolly's Garden


Genus: Wisteria.

Species: Wisteria Domine (Issai Fuji).

This has longer tassles than some varieties and the leaves tend to appear earlier. Plenty of flowers in May but takes 6 or 7 years to get going. I plait and twist the new shoots together to create what will be a gnarled sculptural effect in later years. New shoots have to be handled with care as they can break easily. I prune back severely at least 3 times a year otherwise such a rampant plant can easily get out of hand. So it requires quite a lot of time and work.
