Wisteria can be grown from seed, but may never bloom so is often planted from a grafted vine. We found an organically grown starter vine from The Maple Lady nursery on Etsy. Within a few days, the live plant arrived at our doorstep ready for planting in its new home here in Virginia.
I'd love to imagine that the vine will survive the winter and eventually grow enough to train into a canopy over the back fence door. Time will tell, and as usual — we'll be sure to keep you posted on the progress.
