Plant Families / Wisteria
Prized for the beauty of their spectacular pendulous racemes of fragrant pea-like flowers in spring and early summer, Wisterias are hardy, fast growing deciduous climbers. Easy to grow in sun or part-shade in well-drained soils, Wisterias may be trained into a large tree, on a wall, arch or pergola, or as a freestanding half standard. These woody vines require a strong, sturdy structure which will be able to support their heavy weight at maturity. While Wisterias may be slow to establish and take 3-5 years to begin flowering, but once they start, they never fail to produce a dramatic floral display!
