You may recall my post “An Accidental Wisteria Bonsai….” published last September. In addition to the main trunk of the vine, I had a section that had split off it during the “standard” rotting process large collected wisterias usually go through. It looked like wanting to be a cascade specimen so I obliged. This part of the original vine, which I estimated could be 100 years in age, had also bloomed starting in year two.
There’s no way to know if this wisteria has long-term staying power. The “wood” seems pretty sturdy at this point, but I would imagine in time it’ll continue to weather away. In the meantime, it makes for an enjoyable if somewhat odd cascade wisteria bonsai.
