Wisteria Plant – Wisteria sinensis
Wisterias are a vine that have blue and purple cascading flowers. They grow quickly, without much maintenance required. They reach up to 25 and 30 feet long making them perfect decor for garden features such as gazebos or porches. The vine grows rapidly and on virtually any surface, and its blooms make it a breathtaking accent for every garden. The North American native wisteria needs a fertile, moist, but well drained soil. As they don't produce flowers in the shade, the vine requires sunny area so it can bloom into a showstopper. It is recommended to be planted in the spring or fall so they can bloom in the summer. Wisteria vine is one that lends beauty and fragrance to any space it occupies. Though it may take several years for one of these plants to blossom, it is well worth the wait. The flowers, in shades of blue, violet and white, provide lush coverage and emit an intoxicating scent during their springtime bloom.Because the wisteria can grow up to ten feet per year, it is a popular choice for gardeners who wish to cover vast swathes of the ground. It is essential to plant these lovely vines in areas with full sun exposure. They will still experience growth with partial sunlight, but they grow more slowly and may not flower at all. This is a plant that is difficult to kill, but benefits from extensive pruning. Cutting back around half of the last year’s growth each winter will result in spectacular growth the following spring. If your soil is particularly weak, use compost to provide the necessary nutrients. Phosphorus is also used to promote growth, so a cup or two of bone meal mixed into the soil right before the springtime bloom is a great idea for a happy, healthy plant!
