Growth is numbered by years that it has been alive. Usually, Wisteria blooms on the previous year's growth. Growth from this year will not bloom, but that same growth will bloom the next year.

When pruning, make sure to leave enough of the previous year's growth intact. This will be where the flowering will occur.
