Wisteria Plant - Wisteria Frutescens

Wisteria is a beautiful climbing vine plant, it can be trained to work as a climbing vine or as a tree. The vine will either grow clockwise or counterclockwise around a supporting structure. Wisteria is a native plant of Japan, China, and Korea however is an introduced species that you find in the Eastern United States. Wisteria is most hardy in zones five through nine. The Wisteria plant needs full sun, if you have overcast areas then the plant will not flower as much and become spindly. The soil needs to be slightly acidic, moist, but yet well drained. If left with nothing to climb upwards on it can grow into a mound, with cultivation you can teach the Wisteria to grow into a moderate sized tree with beautiful purple, purple white,pink,or white flowering vines. Flowering for the American species is mid to late summer. Wisteria once it matures is a heavy plant, so a supporting structure for this is required. The blooming process of Wisteria can take three to five years but with proper care can accelerate its growth. Wisteria makes a beautiful accent to any area that has a lattice, a climbing structure such as a fence, and even planting it then training it to drape over a rock wall is a beautiful showpiece for an area. As long as the Wisteria is pruned and cut back during the growing season it can be kept a manageable plant. The seed pods for the North American variety is smooth while the Asian counter part has fuzzy seed pods, this is a great way to tell the difference in the species. The Asian variety grows very aggressively as the North American variety grows a little less aggressive. You can grow Wisteria from seed however most buyers get an already started plant.

Wisteria is one of the most majestic. It features weeping limbs with beautiful purple, blue, red, or white flowers in the spring that make a perfect camouflage for an outdoor entertaining area. It is considered both a vine and a shrub. What’s planted, Wisteria may take a few years to come into itself, but the wait is worth its weight in gold. This unbelievably gorgeous addition to your property will soon become the envy of neighbors. Needs ample water – at least one inch per week the first year – and prefers well-drained soil conditions.
