Wisteria Plant produces gorgeous flower clusters in lavender, blue, and violet shades.
Wisteria plant is a rapidly growing vine that may add 10 feet or more in one year. This beautiful draping plant is a member of the Fabaceae (legume) family, including peas, beans, and lentils.
This plant owes its twining ability to its membership in this family and easily twines, rambles, and climbs over walls, arbors, and trellises. Blooming in the spring, this plant produces gorgeous flower clusters in lavender, blue, and violet shades. The flowers move in the slightest breeze, sending the unmistakable heady aromatic fragrance of the blooms into the air.
This plant also produces huge seed pods, which 19th-century botanists and collectors imported from China and Japan into Great Britain and the U.S. Growing this plant from seed, however, proved to be a challenge since the plants can take up to 15 years to bloom when planted from seed. The flowers from those plants are not as hardy or impressive as plants grown from cuttings used for layering or grafting. Today, it is grown by most gardeners from plants already established in one or two-quart containers.
Wisteria Plant prefers full sun to light shade.
It is hardy to zone 5 and is not difficult to grow. Best planted where it will receive full sun to light shade, this fast and vigorous grower does best in slightly alkaline soil and offers good drainage.
A spot protected from high winds is advised, and it is essential to ensure wisteria gets plenty of water while it is blooming.
The home gardener needs to provide a sturdy support system since the plants become extraordinarily woody and heavy with maturity. And be prepared to do some heavy pruning and shaping since this is considered invasive.
Left unchecked, this plant can take over the entire garden, blocking out light from other plants and causing them to wither and die. It can also climb over walls and houses and invade neighbors' yards.
Chinese and Japanese wisteria are two of the most popularly grown types. The Chinese wisteria vine can grow to 100 feet and generally blooms within three or four years after planting.
Its flower clusters average between six and 12 inches long and are milder in fragrance. The Japanese wisteria does not grow as large as the Chinese plant, but the flower clusters can reach 18 inches long. A notable difference between the two is that while Chinese wisteria flowers bloom simultaneously, Japanese flowers do not bloom all simultaneously.
This plant is a spectacular and showy delight that requires some attention to keep in check but is worth the effort. This graceful, fragrant, and flamboyant vine can help create a magical garden atmosphere.
