Wisteria - magical or nightmare?

Wisteria, a genus of woody, deciduous twining vines, are almost impossible to resist. Before you know it, you will fall in love with the nodding, pendulous blooms.

Be careful when planting, as they can take over your garden and are able strangle and damage gutters, down pipes and other plants, before you know it. Make sure growth is controlled by pruning and do not leave unattended - show them, who is in charge!
