Is my wisteria going to strangle my tree?
Hi I'm new on here.
I have been tidying up my garden this weekend and a wisteria that is about 7 years old I noticed has flowered for the first time ever, lilac flowers, looks pretty.
At the time of planting I thought it might be nice train it up a really old huge magnolia tree which finishes flowering about by April usually. However I have just noticed that the wisteria at the base has grown very thick about 2 inches of trunk and is coiled around the magnolia.
My question is, is the wisteria going to strangle my lovely really over magnolia tree? In which case I will have to cut it down completely or try to move it.
Does anyone know? I don't want to wait to find out and then one day my old old magnolia tree starts dying?
