Landscaping with a Pergola

We’ve all seen stunning pergolas and canopies before; think of the images floating around Facebook and Pinterest that show the ancient Japanese wisteria ceiling. The question arose… “how do I do that for myself?” EASY! This pergola was built a few years back as the entrance to a display garden. Summer Cascade Wisteria was planted with it and allowed to cover the lattice structure.

Now look at this beauty! Even after a harsh winter with over 50 days below zero in Minnesota, it came back like a blooming machine, covering the pergola with dark green foliage and these picturesque purple blooms. It’s really that easy – try it for yourself!
