Prolific Wisteria

This wisteria is native to Asia. It can grow to 25’ in length with an 8’ spread.  It blooms in May with 6-12” long racemes of fragrant, blue-violet flowers. Flowers bloom simultaneously on each raceme providing a dramatic visual display. The flowers give way to bean-like seedpods that ripen in fall and may persist into winter. It prefers slightly acidic, moderately moist and fertile, well-drained soils in full sun (needed for best flowering). It can be slow to establish and may require three years or more to flower. Once established, it can be aggressive, producing rooting surface runners. It will need a sturdy support structure on which to grow; choose growing sites wisely because plants dislike being transplanted.
