Is it too late to “summer prune” my wisteria?
This is the 2nd season for my wisteria vines (I have 2 growing over a large arbor). I'm just now learning that I should be pruning in Jul/Aug to about 6 buds. Is it too late for that? It is now September 25? Thank you.

Yes, there are general rules about pruning your Wisteria, but remember it is VERY difficult to seriously harm your vine.
You can inhibit blossoming by pruning incorrectly but if the plant is healthy for doing so , no harm.
Here is a refresher article for you.
