A 
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
