As a follow up to the recent post about growing wisteria, this is one in my backyard that is putting on quite a show. It’s a Chinese wisteria, and the photo is from last week. When I came back from the Texas convention over the weekend it was nearly finished blooming. Nuts!
The pot was a prototype of one I made for a few years in the last part of my potting career. It ‘s hard to use, actually. Come to think of it, I made a lot of barely useable pots like that around the periphery of my usual work, exploring the boundaries of containers. Very few trees would work in this one, and this wisteria is not really one of them. But it was the closest I had to the right size and height. The form is a bit too strong for the wisteria, and the color does not really support the tree either. With having said all that I probably should not post this! But the flowers are nice, eh? Ignore the pot… enjoy the flowers!
So… having admitted the problems here, I’ll issue a challenge: What pot would work here? Give it a think, and send me some pot images to my email (please keep them smallish, not over 500 kb) and I’ll post them and we’ll review your ideas!
