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.

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.

Yes... Your Amethyst Falls Wisteria can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

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.

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.

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.
