Maybe it was the odd winter . . . but who knows with Wisteria?

Ah it looks perfect like that Jim.

Mine was packed with buds but they are mush now since the hard freeze last night here in western maryland. The tree is too heavy for me to bring indoors ...

I am envious. I have one in the ground that is prolific, and I acquired one last year that is now in a container but it doesnt look very likely to bloom. I am hopeful still. Jim, you have a winner there.

I have a 40-year-old wisteria , the flowers are already almost open today flowers are open , 1 month earlier.
the winter was very cold in France (-20 ° C), I think it is the cause

My 25+ yr old landscape wisteria had 2" long blooms covering it when the freak freeze hit early this week...now the blooms are all withered and faded. They never made it to bloom. I never thought they would be effected like they were. I could have easily tossed a tarp over it for the night.
Those of you who have them should pay attention to the freezes that still may be out there. On the east coast (US) we have been graced with an extremely early spring and mild winter. Everything is out at least 2 weeks early here. The weather was just being normal.
