So far so good. My standard Wysteria seems to be standing on its own "1 foot". I guess time will tell if it gets too heavy on top. It was just a little sappling when I planted it, from memory about 1/4 inch thick. I staked it and kept taking the low growths off. My Native Hibiscus, the purple flowers to the left, is taking over again. I can't see the wysteria from my deck and Ii do want the Wysteria as the feature. I keep threatening to cut Native Hibiscus back but its looking so goddammed pretty I cant seem to do it. I certainly did last year though when it

got so leggy and collapsed over everything. I actually cut it back to about a foot high and it's huge again. Very tough little cookie:p

Gosh, I love photos of your garden! It's so colorful, so lush, so doggone beautiful!
That wisteria will be fabulous as a focal point, but I also envy you the native hibiscus. We have a vine with lovely yellow flowers (a jasmine) that will take over and I have no qualms about cutting it down to the ground. I don't know if I could do that to your pretty hibiscus.
