Wisteria plant looks like it’s dying

Zone France | Mrs_brown added on May 4, 2015 | Answered

Why does my 2 year old wisteria plant look like it's dying directly after replanting? Yesterday we dug up our smallish wisteria plant that was in bloom, carefully taking as much root and soil as possible. But as soon as we replanted it, it looked like it was dying and there has been no change today. Many thanks. Laura

Any kind of move or transplant is a shock to a plant’s system and it takes a period of time to recover. Here is an article on transplant shock that will give you guidelines on how to soothe the transition for your plant:

The best time to transplant wisteria is actually in the late fall or early spring when the plant is dormant. And, just to give you a heads up, established wisteria do not like to be moved and may rebel by not blooming for several years.
