Split Wisteria Trunk

Anonymous added on April 1, 2014 | Answered

I wanted to buy a wisteria vine, and I finally found one in a nursery, but it was split into a "Y" shape, and the trunk looked very split. Are they supposed to split like that, or should I try to find another vine? In case it's pertinent, I live in West Texas, very hot, sunny, and dry, with clay-like sand. Thanks!

If the trunk is damaged, I would not purchase it. While it can recover from this kind of damage, it does increase the chances for disease, which could kill the plant or at the very least damage its ability to grow and flower. Look for healthy specimens.
