Amethyst Falls Wisteria

Pam's Picks
This vining American stunner is a more manageable version of Wisteria than its aggressive Asian cousin. It's a slow grower, so it's easy to keep in check. Plus, you don't have to wait years for it to flaunt its purple weeping flowers, as it often blooms in its first year! Amethyst Falls provides instant romantic charm climbing a pergola or covering a trouble spot such as an unattractive wall.

Wisteria Amethyst Falls is a flowering vine native to North America that oftentimes suffers from the bad reputation the Asian Wisteria vines have earned due to their invasive growing habits. Just to set the record straight, be assured that Amethyst Falls Wisteria is a slower growing, less aggressive and better behaved vine than its Chinese and Japanese cousins.

While other varieties of Wisteria may take up to 10 years to begin flowering, Amethyst Falls Wisteria flowers at one year of age. Blooming heavily in spring, it will continue blooming intermittently throughout the summer months as well.

Gorgeous green foliage provides a lovely backdrop for the weeping lavender-blue flower clusters that cascade downward giving the appearance of a waterfall–therefore the name, Amethyst Falls.

Deciduous Amethyst Falls Wisteria is easily trained to an arbor or trellis, so it’s perfect for framing the entrance to a garden or adding decorative interest to patio supports and beams. It’s also possible to trim, shape and train this climber to become a tree, on par with any found in a storybook’s enchanted forest.

Amethyst Falls Wisteria gives off an aroma that attracts bees, birds and butterflies like crazy. Countless varieties of hummingbirds literally flock to this particular Wisteria.

Amethyst Falls Wisteria is hardy and adaptable to most any type of soil, as long as it’s well-drained. For best flowering results, plant this twining vine in areas with full sun so that it is truly able to show off her dangling purple blooms.

Drought tolerant, deer and pest resistant--this Wisteria is so easy to grow. Minimal pruning and a little fertilization in late winter is all it takes to keep this flowering vine looking its best year after year.

This flowering vine is very popular, and is selling quickly this season. Order yours today.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant 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.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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.

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.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

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.

By: Kirsten Otte
Just got my Wisteria. LOVE IT! Item shipped within the 3 weeks the site mentions, and was very well packaged. Plant was well within the height promised, and is full, bushy, and healthy. Very pleased!

By: Teresa Cabebe
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.
