Six years ago we planted two wisteria vines to camouflage a chain link fence that separates our backyard from a church parking lot and to give us a bit of privacy. At the time my dad, who had a masterful green thumb, reminded me to be patient. Perennials take time, he said. The first year they "sleep", the second year they "creep", and the third year they "leap."
It appears that our wisteria vines doubled my need for patience, given the fact that it took TWO years to perform each of those tasks. Last year the "poor dears" only had a dozen or so blossoms, but LOOK AT THEM NOW!
They have LEAPT!
