  • You have to train in into a tree. They're not really trees but HUGE invasive vines, Just keep twisting it around itself, you can even braid the vines into a tree. The ones i have seen are GORGEOUS. I also doubt your child is going to go out there & eat the wisteria tree. I would leave it. It will eventually bloom. Give it some fertilizer with high phosphorus & potassium, but low nitrogen. This will make it bloom.
