Q.My Wisteria

I hate the wisteria it makes vines all over the lawn & as much as I cut them they keep coming back. The flower is pretty but I hate the vines so will withgo having one of these “weeds” as I’m tired of dealing with it.

I understand your position. Wisteria, especially Chinese wisteria is a rampant grower. Recommendations are to prune it in January and July to keep it under control and to maximize the number of blooms. The American wisteria is a less aggressive plant. Another vine choice is climbing hydrangea. Bougainvillea is a lovely vine that you can grow in a large container and bring indoors over winter. Here is info on how that works: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/bougainvillea/bougainvillea-winter-care.htm
