Goodbye, Wisteria. Maybe

We are never totally free of Wisteria. I hacked a little more than usual. It imploded upon itself. Pictures tell the story.

I've hacked more since the pics. 


  1. Blogger has been giving me fits again....wouldn't let me comment for a while.

    The wisteria sounds like my vinca major and a climbing euonymous that is about to eat the west side of the house.

  2. Wow! That really does tell a story - having to do the job with a machine!!! This makes me even more scared of wisteria, even though it is so beautiful.

  3. Wisteria is always too invasive. For fifteen minutes -- well, maybe 15 days a year -- of purple glory it requires constant attention or it would invade the world. I got tired of it, He-who-mows agreed that it looked 'ragged' -- his words. After a day of deep thought, I started in.

    There's another whole boxwood/wisteria structure back behind nearer the fence that I have to decide about.

    I caught a 20 foot vine easing across the yard toward the fence this week, flat so the mower misses it, not leafed out so I didn't notice, but it had plans.

    Glenda, we have that euonymous, too. Vinca vine, too.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
