Well if I’ve seen wisteria flowering in July, I haven’t seen it purple! The house down the road from me has a lovely big plant that’s probably been there for many years. I’ve posted photos of it before, but not looking like this.
Yes, a second flush in a much richer purple!

that is so beautiful
Thank you, I like the richer colour 🙂
Gorgeous, much more heady than the lighter mauve. Is the heat intensifying the colour perhaps?
Ooh that’s a thought, I guess it could be 🙂
Now I want to see what it looks like in May. I saw some in Trelissick on Sunday, also in flower and a very lovely mauve-purple colour. Trouble is I never seem to get there when it is in full bloom so I don’t know if the colour was deeper than usual. Wonderful to see it having a second flush 🙂
Easy, I took this one in May, same plant https://lucidgypsy.com/2018/05/19/six-word-saturday-76/
Have you seen one having a second flush? they’re wonderful enough as it is, but this is surpassing itself.
It is a beauty. Quite deep purple on the new blossom, so maybe that is why the second flush comes out purple. Perhaps it will fade.
That’s lovely! Hasn’t it been a crazy summer? 🙂 🙂
Totally crazy, Jo, and it’s not over ŷet
I’m hoping it lasts until late October, then a long autumn followed by spring in January. Not much to ask is it?
Not at all 🙂 🙂
I love the deep purple of that wisteria, Gilly. 🙂
Wisteria is always a winner with me – glorious in both colour and droop. I entered my grandfather’s house under an arch covered in an old twisted vine, beautiful both in and out of flower.
What a precious memory Meg xx
And a real surprise in high summer!
Wow! That is vibrant
To be honest Sue the phone didn’t quite capture the intensity!
Goodness, some plant!
Beautiful 😀 😀
Thanks Cee, have you ever seen one that dark?
Beautiful . . . . mine has not flowered this year so lovely to see one in full bloom even if it has confused its seasons
I’ve always heard they’re hard to establish. I’d love one but don’t have space so I’ll just enjoy the one down the road 🙂
My first one was enormous, and then on year just suddenly died back completely. Cut it back down to its base and kind of forgot about it, following year there was life! Amazing, but yes it is taking ages to return to what it once was.
Ow that looks so purple! My fav colour 😃
