This frost-damage was particularly sad with regard to our garden pride, the solitary Wisteria-sinensis (see: Resurrection of our Wisteria sinensis). In 2015 we had a very late spring.
Temperatures have not been very low, with average rainfall and average sunshine.
Although the shape of the Wisteria sinensis is no longer solitary as it used to be, again we have an abundant bloom.
This year we had a new record, after the frost-damage in 2011/2012. I roughly counted over 1000 raceme at one time (May 18th 2015), and I am sure that I omitted one or two.
And by the way, the fragrances are as fabulous as the sight and are filling the whole right main-garden.
This photo shows our Wisteria in its environment as an important visible-object in the Mount Sumeru, or Shumi-sen scene.
The photo-album shows a small selection of current and some historical pictures of the last ten years of our Wisteria-sinensis.
