Post subject:  Blooming wisteria

Hello everyone,
This week my wisteria in bloom; I don't think I've posted pictures of it before so here it is at close to peak of its glory.
I brought it inside yesterday to enjoy for a few hours and within minutes the house was overwhelmed by its perfume. Lovely.
One question, as well. I'm not completely happy with the pot. What would you plant this in?
Best regards,
Carl

To me, the main cause of the discordance caused by the pot is its glossiness. The shiny surface is intruding into the effect created by the soft white flowers. It lacks elegance and refinement.
A pot with silky, semi-glossy surface would be the perfect choice. It would be colourful and yet reserved.
This is a really good tree, with trunk of outstanding beauty.
