Wisteria flower odor
My wisteria vine is from Georgia. It blooms 3x a summer. It smells horrible....like a cat has sprayed! What can I do to change the odor?

Ah, it sounds like you have an American wisteria, likely the 'Amethyst Falls' variety, which unfortunately has a disagreeable odor like that of cat urine - normal for this wisteria. There is little you can do about this since it's normal, though pruning out the flowers or masking the scent with other 'nice-smelling' plantings may help alleviate the problem. Wish I could be more helpful.
