Wisteria Alba: sudden death
My beloved young-ish but established wisteria alba failed to show any sign of life this spring, and on cutting the stems there was no green to be seen.
It's on a chalky soil, at the foot of an east facing wall, but most of the growth is above the wall in full sun. It was supported on a frame.
No sign of disease and I had watered and mulched as usual throughout the growing period.... can't think what killed it. Any ideas?
PS. One stem has layered itself so there might be hope for a resurrection
