Yes, I feel the same about mine too Linda. And my sanctuary in a challenging world. :)

That's a lovely photo of a Wisteria! Is it really light pink or is that a trick of the light? It it is then it will be the first time I've ever seen a pink one!

Just a couple of days ago I saw my first ever white Wisteria! Never seen one before, only different shades of blue.

I see from the ads alongside that there are different colour Wisterias other than different shades of blue!

Yes, Balcony, it is pink. The colour grades from very pale pink to a deep pink in the centre. I love it. It is my favourite plant in the garden.

Must look lovely then! Is it as difficult as the blue one to get to flower? Wisteria Sinensis I believe is quite difficult to get to flower until it become a very big plant. I think it has to be summer pruned to get it to flower the following year.

I put a photo detail in Garden photos for you, Balcony. The secret for all Wisteria is to buy it at this time of year and make sure it is in flower. I bought mine with two flowers, then each year it doubled in numbers. It has nothing to do with age. I prune it twice a year. March and June. The pink is a smaller plant.

Thanks Linda, I'll have a look at your photo.
