Keeping this in view, does wisteria flower on old or new growth?
Wisteria produces its flowers buds during the previous growing season ("blooms on old wood"). If the plants were pruned from late fall to early spring, those buds were removed. There are some steps you take to encourage a reluctant wisteria to bloom.
Beside above, how long does it take for a wisteria plant to flower? three to five years
Also asked, why does my wisteria not flower?
The most likely reason your wisteria won't bloom is due to too much nitrogen. When a wisteria plant has too much nitrogen, it will have plenty of foliage growth, but very little and maybe no blooms. The last, and least likely, reason a wisteria won't bloom is over pruning. Over pruning will remove the flower buds.
Can wisteria be pruned hard?
Pruning Mature Wisteria Plants Cut back new growth and main branches to just two or three buds to keep the plant neat, tidy and ready for the forthcoming growing period. Hard pruning may be required if there are dead stems to deal with, or particularly woody areas of the vine causing gaps in the foliage and flowering.
