Irene -

I LOVE that first photo - that stem is gorgeous - may I steal your idea  ?????? The one thing about wisterias that puts me off is the branches all over, but yours looks so good. 

Is that a camellia in the bed  behind it? What are the other plants?

What are those fluffy leaves in the background of the 3rd photo?
Retired - now full-time gardener - and loving it!

Irene - absolutely fabulous! I adore wisterias, but they wouldnt grow where i live , it is way to hot.I also love jade vine.About 2 years ago i went to mauritius with my 2 teenage kids.We went to a animal park there and at one spot we came to a cage with the jade vine hanging from the roof in abundance.I was going wild - telling my kids - look at the gorgeous grape vine.They thought i was mad because they found the very rare white tiger lying underneath it far more interesting - and all i saw was the plants!

  Thank you all for your replies, Rene Camellia "Nuccio's Ruby",Viburnum "Macrocephyllum",Hellebores in foreground and the fluffy green leaves are parsley in the Calla bed, I put all my prunings thru mulcher so I have parsley coming up everywhere but my local shop and tearooms really love it. I grow all but one Wisteria on as standards otherwise they do what the white one has done and gone crazy up the birch tree. Susan I thought the Wisterias wouldn't mind the heat, it gets fairly hot here and I never water them. Irene

Pretty, pretty!!  :clap:   I love the first pic especially, great design.

 LOL Susan for missing the tiger!  I've only seen the jade vines in magazines but they are stunning!
