What a difference a year makes (several pics)

Last year just as the wisteria was ready to bloom - boom - we had a freezing spell with snow. The results were not pretty:

This year is a different story for the wisteria

Even when it starts dropping its petals and is past its prime, its makes for a nice pic this year

Beautiful pictures.
Wisteria is not quite hardy here. Drats.

Thanks Ron. And, if its any consolation, I can get a nice bloom out of mine about once every four years out of the last eight.

They're temperamental suckers in my book. But, when they're good, they're pretty good.

Wisteria doesn't bloom as heavily here in z9b CA. There is an enourmous wisteria in my neighbor's yard that gives them a few measly blooms every year and even those are barely visible because the vine doesn't go completely decidious and the leaves hide the flowers.
