Oh Wisteria!

We knew we were going to have to design some sort of free-standing trellis for this wisteria plant, otherwise it would rip the front of the house off. I had no idea how fast the stuff grows until now.




You may remember we had to butcher the front side to paint enough to pass the inspection. Tyree felt bad about it afterward. Turns out he need not have worried.

Yikes!




I'm thinking we should build something like this:




...in front of the house, completely free-standing and train the plant away from the structure. It grows so fast I almost think we could prune off the branch closest to the house each year and let it grow towards the front of the trellis.
