    I love wisteria, Judy. You are very lucky to have some growing near your home.
    Favorite floral scents.... Wisteria, night blooming jasmine, lilac, peony, honeysuckle, raspberry flowers, cottage roses.... very few things in life can compete with scents to enlighten your mood.

    Lol KIm we used to have lilacs too But hubby cut them down because they were in the way when he painted the house
    he cut the wisteria down too but they came back with bonus flowers LOL the lilacs didn;t survive the severe trimming
    that is my house in back of the wisteria...I just love floering plants sometimes even the weeds are pretty
    Hugs Judy:)

    Hmmm, never saw them before. Do they smell like lilacs? They are beautiful. We are limited to what we grow out here on the plains. Lilacs are one we can grow, take a look. Hope my picture posts.

    This is a nice lilac bush Aus. Lots of flowers on a compact mound. Do you trim yours?
    I just about killed the big one I had in Michigan. I overpruned the "Old Growth" branches which is a MAJOR no no. It didn't flower for 3 seasons after that pruning. I thought I'd killed it. Then I read that lilacs ONLY grow on their old growth branches. So if you want to trim, you have to take out the newer sucker branches and leave the big limbs alone.
    It finally came back with a bang on the 4th year post pruning and I Definitely learned my lesson. I pruned very selectively after that.

    There's a bush down here that LOOKS like lilacs but has no scent whatsoever. I've found that alot of the prettier bushes and plants down here are more for looks than smelling good. I'm very thankful for the wild raspberries and honeysuckle that are "weeds" , otherwise I don't think there'd be anything worth smelling down here.
