    Michael. Great photos of outstanding trees. The wisteria is beautiful. I e struggled to create back-budding on mine and, thus, it remains rather leggy. And thoughts on forcing back-budding on a Chinese wisteria? Keep up the great photography.

      Thanks Ignacio, I don’t have any tricks for back budding on wisteria, other than to try a strong cutback eventually. They just don’t seem to want to do much, even with the partial defoliation technique in late spring.
