Wisteria

.
The wisteria or glycine is a climbing plant that can grow vigorously, and at the end of winter blooms revealing all its charms.

Wisteria or wisteria are very vigorous and long-lived climbing plants that over the years develop a wisteria, we must take into account their great vigor and final volume to avoid problems of scale in the future. Wisteria, like bougainvillea, are climbing plants that, due to their great vigor, require a large volume of soil. If we grow it in a container, it will immediately explore and occupy the entire volume of soil, which will result in stunted growth and, consequently, insignificant flowering, which is why it is not advisable. Every spring they grow wonderful flowers in shades of white, blue and violet roses before the leaves grow. The spectacular aroma that emanates from its bouquets of flowers will conquer more than one, although it will be more or less intense depending on the variety. Its fruits are very showy velvety pods. One of the requirements of the wisteria is that it is planted in a deep soil, since it has ramified and very aggressive roots due to its vigorous growth. This climbing shrub prefers acidic soils, although it can be grown on any soil with caution when soils are too wet or too calcareous.

Irrigation should be regular, more frequent in the first years of the plant and we will pay every year paying special attention during the flowering season. The wisteria can be multiplied by layering, cuttings, grafts or seeds. The most common diseases are spots on the leaf due to fungi, powdery mildew, rust or virosis. The most common pests that affect wisteria or glycine are aphids, woodlice or leaf cutter bee.

The wisteria is a climbing plant whose habit of growth consists of developing vigorous shoots that are entangled in the supports that the plant finds in its path, being able to even climb up to the top of the trees. The stems of growth are long and the flowers appear on the small lateral stems, or darts, that the main stem leaves as it continues its ascent towards the sky. To achieve the maximum flowering we must promote the development of the greatest number of lateral shoots or darts possible, and this we achieve by resorting to the continuous impingement of the growth stems. Once we have reached the desired size with the wisteria, the pruning will consist of keeping the growth contained, cutting out all the vigorous stems that emerge and leaving all the lateral stems in charge of the flowering. If the wisteria is at ease, it will grow incessantly; To maximize flowering it is usually advisable to carry out the pruning described three times a year: during the spring, summer and autumn, that is, in full growth of the plant.
