Wisteria dormancy

Zone North Providence, Rhode Island 02911 | Nkerrigan154 added on May 25, 2016 | Answered

My twenty year old wisteria is large and has bloomed for the last thirteen years. This year there is no sign of growth. I am worried it has died. Do they ever go dormant?

Your Wisteria could just be delayed this spring.
Check the branches and bark. Do the branches snap and break or bend?
Scratch the bark. If you see green, it is still alive.
Dead wood appears tan or brown under the bark.
