Product Details

Product Details

Our native Wisteria offers an excellent alternative to Asian types—it flowers dependably at a younger age, is noninvasive, and, being more compact, can be pruned to grow in large containers. A superior selection, Wisteria frutescens 'Amethyst Falls' produces lightly fragrant 4–6", deep blue-purple cascades in late spring and again in summer.

Wisteria is a genus of deciduous vines whose lovely, fragrant flowers and almost overwhelming vigor make them useful in a wide variety of settings. Plants grow rapidly to 30' and completely bury any structure they are allowed to annex. This rampant growth is easily controlled (and flowering is encouraged) by regular pruning. Plants thrive in full sun (or partial shade in the South) and average soil.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

Beautiful Wisteria

I ordered three of these American Wisteria and was thrilled to receive large, healthy-looking bareroot plants. I potted them in the largest terracotta pots I could find. I’m growing them as standards in mixed borders. They put on growth within a week, grew quickly and bloomed the most adorable lavender blooms! I say “adorable” because they aren’t the drooping blooms of the Asian varieties. Rather, they hang more horizontal. I’m hoping they bloom again this summer since I deadheaded them. Even if they don’t, the foliage is lovely and graceful, and I’m very happy with them.

Latin Name Pronunciation: wis-teer'ee-uh     

Grow Wisteria in full sun (or partial shade in the South and West) and average garden soil. Fertilize only if your soil is exceptionally poor.

Wisterias are very vigorous; they require an especially strong support that can withstand the stranglehold of the woody stems. To control growth and to encourage flowering, prune frequently but lightly during summer; then cut each side shoot back to just 5–6 buds in late summer or early fall. Remove suckers (shoots arising from the base of the main stem) as soon as they appear.

Vines climb by means of twining stems (W. floribunda twines from right to left, W. sinensis from left to right).

Please note: Wisterias are generally slow to break dormancy after planting. Please be prepared to wait until early summer for your plant to leaf out. In subsequent years, it will leaf out at the normal time (midspring).
