I hesitated to buy a plant like this online because the last time I did, from a different seller, I got a puny stick in a little bag of dirt, with no roots. This arrived in a substantial pot, looking full and healthy. Looking forward to seeing it grow.

Very nice looking vine. Arrived full and healthy. Blooms did not open fully this season; maybe next. Aroma is not nice like other wisteria though.

Review Title
I planted my wisteria this spring which is probably not optimum but it is doing very well with my backyard fence giving it some protection from the sweltering Oklahoma sun. It has even been shooting a few blooms this week.

Great Buy
I am very pleased with the large size of the plant and the health of the plant. I would recommend buying this plant from this grower to others. I will most likely buy again from Fast-Growing-Trees.

The best
I was blown away by the healthy condition and size of 2 wisteria plants I ordered. They were so well packed and quickly shipped that they barely needed any time to adjust to their new home. One has taken a while to show new growth but the other sprouted new leaves right away and began climbing. I wouldn't hesitate to order from FGT again.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Amethyst Falls Wisteria



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Amethyst Falls Wisteria.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Amethyst Falls Wisteria gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Amethyst Falls Wisteria again after the transplant is complete.

Based on other reviews on the Internet, I'm a little confused. I thought this was a tree. Many reviewers are saying that it is a vine that they had grow on a trellis. Which one is correct?
Beth E on Mar 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a vine. It can be grown on a sturdy pergola or arch, or it can be pruned fairly rigorously and trained to have a trunk with the leaves and flowers on top. When grown like this, it is usually kept under 6-8 feet. Amethyst Falls comes from a native Wisteria, and grows much smaller (20 feet or so if unpruned) than the commonly seen Chinese Wisteria, which can grow over 50-60 feet high if left on its own.
I planted 2 Amethyst Falls close to a cistern wall. The wall is solid concrete with rebar. Should I be concerned about the root system damaging the wall? I use the cistern to catch rainfall to water my plants. Advise. Thanks
Lanny H on Aug 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If your concrete is 5to6 inches thick, you will probably be OK. The Amethyst Falls is not nearly as aggressive as the Chinese Wisteria, but it is still a pretty strong grower.
My Amethyst Falls smells like cat urine. Is there anything that could be added to the soil to help the fragrance? I'm in Ohio...zone 5.
Betsy B on Apr 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Everyone's nose picks up scents differently. Some agree with you that Amethyst Fall's blooms, especially when old, have an unpleasant small. Many others say it has no scent or that the scent is sweet. I have not heard of anything that would alter the scent.
Is it as beautiful as it looks?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have not had great success with my wisteria. I purchased both the purple and amethyst falls variety from this site and they neither one have done well. I live in Texas (zone 8) and the plants face the west on a trellis as part of a pergola I built to shade my patio. I expect they would do better with someone who had better gardening instincts than I have. They have grown large/long and have snaked their way up onto the roof of the pergola, but the purple has never bloomed (I'm on year 3), and the amethyst falls bloomed in year 1 but not in year 2. I have seem some youtube videos about how to prune and care for wisteria. I expect you must follow this advice if you want to see the blossoms. I had hoped the plant would be low maintenance, but it isn't if you want to see the blossoms.
I have not had any blooms in 4yrs????
Leonard R on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have had a wisteria vine for ten years. It did nothing for the first 3-4 years then I trimmed it back and it's been flowering and growing every year. Try cutting it back a bit.
What zones do these tolerate and not winter-kill?
Joan R on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These are suitable for zones 5-9. Here is a hardiness zone map to see where your area is located.

http://www.fast-growing-trees.com/USDA-Plant-Hardiness-Zone-Map.htm
it shows it grows in zones 5 through 9 but yet is says it does not ship to Arizona.. why..?
connie on May 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Every state has its own laws and regulations about shipping live plant material into its area, and those with a big agricultural industry have the strictest regulations. Arizona prohibits shipping of this product into their state, and it could be for a number of reasons: where it was grown, the potting material, the variety of plant,, etc.
do you need a special planting mix for wisteria?
sandi on Jun 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not at all. Good garden soil is all it needs. It is a great plant. A few blooms last year when I put it in. Covered with blossoms this year! It is also much easier to control than the Asian wisterias.
Can these grow well in planters?
FJ L on Jul 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have never tried to grow them in planters, but my hunch is that they would NOT do well since their mature height (length) is 20-30 feet. Even if you trimmed the growth back aggressively you would still have to trim the roots to keep them from cracking the pot you plant them in. See this thread for more on this http://www.botanicalgarden.ubc.ca/forums/showthread.php?t=18348.
How invasive is this plant?
Jackie H on Jul 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, this is the American version of the wisteria and is non-invasive.

The Chinese version van be invasive in some parts of the country, and is an aggressive growing in other parts.
How do I get the seeds to sprout and start?
dan H on Aug 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I've grown wisteria from seed produced by another wisteria in a different part of my yard. Not sure if you started with a natural seed pod or purchased seeds. What I did was take the mature seed, put it in a peat pot (for seed germination) with a little bit of potting soil, plant it in the top part of the pot and keep it moist (but not wet). Once it gets going you can then plant the peat pot with your new wisteria (after all danger of frost is passed) in the garden (or container). Hope that helps.
Do you sell a RED wisteria?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we only carry Wisterias in pink and purple.
When will it bloom? Mine is 4 years old and nothing
Weezie on May 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Weezie, We got ours last year or the year before and it is absolutely covered with purple blooms ready to burst out. We are in a Suburb of Chicago where we had a mild winter and warm spring. We are really happy with ours and hope yours blooms soon. I haven't done anything special to ours except to keep it watered well during very hot spells.
Second year, no blooms? But it's full and growing well. Seems to love the area it's in.
Lindi B on May 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: mine is just starting to bud, no blooms yet, but the spring weather has been funky this year. last year was my first year with them and they did get a couple of flowers. I thought I heard that year 2 is a growth year for flowing trees and they may not flower. fingers crossed~! good luck to you.
Is this an evergreen?
Christy on May 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. This is a vine. It has a woody base, but it is a vine that climbs and will produce purple flowers.
I have a very high wall that separates our yard from our neighbors. It's an eyesore but I would love to plant Amethyst Falls Wysteria plants would they climb the wall?
Debbi M on Apr 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would say definately if the wall is a little rough. If you need just attach some lathing strips or chicken wire to the wall. The vines attach to just about anything. Mine are in bloom right now and they are beautiful. I am growing them up over a an arbor we built. I can't wait to see them in a couple more years. Caution they are aggressive in summer and require frequent trimming. In winter they are dormant and loose their leaves.
Will this vine's roots damage basement walls and/or grow through the cracks/grout?
Charles on Sep 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am in Florida with no basement but have planted on the corner of the house. It is doing well but only one flower this 2nd year. So far no root damage but keep an eye on the vines that grow fast when they are sneaking away from where they should be heading!
why are my wisteria falls leaves yellow?
Bianka G on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Could they not be draining well? Mine are on a slight incline and are watered often but they do drain well. I also buy triple phosphate on line. They have grown 10 feet since planted and have beautiful purple flowers. They are also a great privacy fence. Good luck!
