    Wisteria must be seven to 15 years old before they are old enough to bloom. The last, and least likely, reason a wisteria won't bloom is over pruning. Over pruning will remove the flower buds. It is extremely difficult to over prune a wisteria, though.

      I have to disagree with you Mogie........I took a root one year and planted it.....that following year, I had buds and blossoms. The bush itself is so hardy and a NO problem bush with no problems......just trim after it is done blooming.

    It took 6-8 years after planting mine for it to bloom. Baby it the first year, then after that, prune if needed but don't fertilize. Mine bloomed twice last year for some reason, so did my forsythias. I planted mine maybe 20 years ago, I don't feed it at all & prune it a couple times a growing season.
