Wisteria That Thinks It's a Groundcover
I planted this wisteria when we moved into our SJC house two years ago. I was so excited that I had a big sturdy pergola that could handle this domineering vine. It is in bloom now and as you can see it is performing beautifully except that it refused to grow up! It has never been pruned and there is a matching vine on the other side of the pergola that has already made its way to the top, although it is not in bloom yet. They are both the same kind, Texas Purple, so I don't really know why this one stays short. But it is still lovely!
