Description

Wisteria sinensis is known for its dramatic floral display of fragrant, violet-blue, pea-like flowers that appear in spring in long, showy pendulous clusters. The flowers are followed by 4-6 inch long, velvety, bean-like seed pods that may persist into winter. The deep green compound leaves are divided into pointed leaflets. Prune when done flowering to control size and shape. Chinese Wisteria is a fast growing deciduous woody vine with twining stems that needs space and a sturdy structure for support as it climbs and develops a massive trunk over time. Wisteria can be trained into an espalier or a small tree but is perfect on arbors, fences, or patios. Winter deciduous.

Plant care

Grows best in slightly acidic, well-drained soils with sturdy structure to support considerable weight of mature vine. Water deeply and regularly to develop root system during the first growing season. Reduce frequency as needed. Can tolerate drought but grows better with regular water. Full sun is needed for best flowering. Prune when done flowering in the summer and again in the winter to control size and shape.

Winter deciduous, Wisteria will drop its leaves in late fall or winter if temperatures are cold enough. In areas with mild winters full dormancy may not occur but the vine will take on its winter form with some yellowing of leaves or a bare-boned look.
