We have never seen wisteria bloom again once it has finished flowering for the season but that is precisely what is happening.
Our wonderful American wisteria, "Amethyst Falls", is covered with a second flush of blossoms.

While taking pictures of Steve's yellow flower bed "Siberia" last week, I leaned over to be able to get a better photograph of some golden yellow coreopsis and there sat a plump blossom in full bloom.
On closer inspection, we found buds covering all of the new growth. The flower clusters are much smaller than the spring bloom a month ago - shorter and smaller by more than half in some cases. But we're delighted with this unexpected encore.
