Wisterias can die on you. They're good at that.
We had a white one that upped and died and had to be replaced.
We inherited this one when we bought the house in 1972. I built a pergola for it thirty years ago, then had to replace it ten years ago with a stronger one. This is from four years ago. It was a it of a mess, a lot of ugly wood.
But three years ago, the main stems rotted leaving one which "part rotted," near the base. The bit with the bungie cord round it.
This one branch was trained along the top of the fence between the garage and the house and then along the pergola on the back of the house where it meets the one coming from the right.
I didn't want to lose it, so I scraped the rot away and covered the area with a whole tube of clear silicone.
It's still thriving. It's produced more branches from near the base that I've trained back over the pergola I built for the old one.
We bought another white on which is in the middle, but there's a layered bit of the old one growing up next to the side garage door.
Hopefully we'll get some blooms on it next year.
This one has never been any bother. We trained it from when we bought it. It's supported by several horizontal wires stretched between eyes in the concrete posts. It isn't attached to the panels.
