Purple Wisteria

Giant Lavender Flowers

Height:

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better results the first full growing season.

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.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Purple 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 Purple Wisteria


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

This tree is doing well at my sisters house but her Lilac died. I don't even know how many trees I have purchased from Fast Growing Trees and I tell everyone it is the best place to get their trees. Thank you for such great trees! I plan to buy me a Purple Wisteria this fall, and I cannot wait to see how it does at my place!!

By: Ed Ngai
I bought, planted Wisteria. from a thin brance in a pot, replanted 6 months It was a small bush w/ green leaves. Then for 7 months I legt, no watering! Came back it was 3' brown twiggy ost all green. I got back to watering and now in June I have green leaves showing again. I'd say it's drought tolerant in upper desert Coachella Valley.

By: Addison Gast
Harty little rascal this purple wisteria. In Texas this year we had some hefty frost mornings and well into spring. I received my plant in great shape and as advertised, great rootball. I ordered two and glad I did--evidently lost one to frost( still waiting on just one bud) but the other is starting to bust out and strut its stuff. Can hardly wait on these to open.

The star rating above is not working properly, but if it was, I would give this tree 5 stars. I bought it to plant in front of an old metal clothesline ladder that is really unsightly. I planted it last Fall. Made it through the NY winter, grew a little more, and bloomed beautifully in the Spring. Surprisinly, part of it grew up the latter, and now (August), that part is about 12 feet above the 4-5 foot high tree. I will have to figure out how to prune it at the end of the season or early next Spring. I have a feeling this tree has a lot of possibilities if pruned properly.

Can this tree be pruned each year so it stays about 6 ft tall? or is there a Dwarf version? Does it do well in Michigan winters?
George on Jun 14, 2014
Best Answer: Purple Wisteria Trees are very forgiving, and can be pruned back to be kept at a desired height of around 5 feet tall. They handle Michigan winters well.

what will be a hight of my mature tree?
wanda w on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: I built a trellis for our wisteria which was 10 feet high. They can grow higher so it's a good idea to trellis them and they will continue to spread over your trellis.

Is the Blue Moon Wisteria a plant or tree? I am looking for the plant variety that will grow up a trellis and over it. Will this variety do the job?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: I believe it is a tree. Mine is growing so well. It is 3 times the size it was when it arrived last year. It does have some growth shooting out from the root but they look more like branches then a vine. Also mine is looking more like a tree as it gets bigger. It does not seem to climb so I would say that this is not the vine wisteria. Susan

how is the mature hight of wisteria from your nursery?

How much water?
A shopper on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: Very little. I live in a HOT PART of California, and I water this maybe once or twice a week. It grows really, really fast. I don't know if more water would hurt its growth, but if you can plant it somewhere that isn't hit by sprinklers so that you are able to control the water it gets, it might be a good idea. Sometimes I even FORGET to water it and get worried, but it doesn't matter. I have two of them, and they just grow and grow.

When is the best time to plant Wisteria in Salt Lake City, Utah? It is getting hot and dry by June.
Also, we have alkaline soil, clay like. Can Wisteria do well here? When should I plant?
Melinda W on Jun 5, 2014
Best Answer: I planted my wisteria during the summer. In Grand Junction I too have alkaline soils. I added a 1/2 & 1/2 mixture of humus and peat moss to the pit and mulch around the top, periodically breaking up the hard ground at the surface. In the fall I added more humus around the surface. It made it through the winter. Was one of the later plants to leaf out in late May, but is now taking off and thriving after the spring rains and the heat we have now. Hope that helps.

is wisteria a perennial?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2014
Best Answer: YES, WISTERIA IS A PERRENIAL IN THE SENSE THAT A ROSE IS A PERRENIAL. WITH CARE AND PROPER WATER IT WILL CONTINUE YEAR AFTER YEAR. I HAVE SEEN THEM, AFTER MANY YEARS, PRODUCE VINES THAT WERE SEVERAL INCHES IN DIAMETER WHICH COVERED A VERY LARGE AREA. IT IS A GOOD PLANT.

what plant food do you feed wisteria plants?
Kathy R on Jun 15, 2014
Best Answer: Honestly, I haven't fed mine anything. Planted last fall in prepared soil that was already there. No planter mix, no fertilizer, in soil that is anything but perfect. It has already grown a foot from being about 5 inches tall from when I planted it. If you want to spend money you can do something, but I want more trees and want to spend money on ones I don't have to put a lot of money in.

I live in Mountain View Hawaii, about 1500 ft up. It rains a lot but when the sun is out, it can be very hot. Can I grow this wisteria here?
Karol D on Jul 6, 2014
Best Answer: I live in a really dry/hot area-- Central Valley, California -- and don't water mine at all in the winter and maybe every second day in the summer, and they both do well with that routine. However, I think if you have a spot that gets plenty of sun that it will grow for you. It may not bloom as much as if it was a bit drier, but I suspect it will grow for you. I know that's not a lot to go on; it's just my opinion after having mine for a couple years now and monitoring them. Put it in full sun, though, or I suspect it will not do well. Good Luck!

Will the Purple Wisteria live through N.H. winters?
mary l on Jul 18, 2014
Best Answer: I am not familiar with N.H. winters - but last fall we had to replant this young tree as it was in the way of some landscaping we had to do. Here in northern Iowa we had a very long, harsh winter last year with a lot of snow and temps dipping down to -25 degrees for prolonged periods. It is doing fine this summer. Also, I have a wisteria vine that is about 3 years old and it is thriving. Hope this helps!

Where are these most grown, or where do they grow most plentiful at? From what country?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2014
Best Answer: Purple Wisterias do well all over the country, how ever I do often see them all over town in SC, I believe they're more poplar in the South. Wisterias do very well in the North also. They're from China and Korea.
