Pruning and care of wisteria vine

Zone 7 | bjooones added on March 22, 2012 | Answered

I bought a property with a wisteria vine on it. The host was a red oak. I didn't know it was a wisteria and cut it about 4' from the ground. It was a massive vine reaching 60'. Will it live and how do I care for it?
