Awesome Grower!
I have a Wisteria I planted 5 years ago as a 1 foot baby and it has grown into an 8 foot giant. The flowers that I get each year are gorgeous and smell amazing.
When I saw that FGT.com sells Wisteria, I had to get more, so bought 2 of these!
FGTrees does a GREAT job packaging trees for shipping, and both of my Wisteria arrived in great condition. They were a foot tall and very healthy.
I re-potted them into a pot because I wasn't sure where I wanted them to be in my yard.
I bought these 2 in the beginning of July 2014 and we had a very hot summer and I was worried the heat would be too much for them, but they are doing AWESOME!
They have grown from the 1 foot bare branched plants I got to the 2 foot 7 inch beauties that have today. After they were in the pots for a month, I gave them a Fish fertilizer I got at Home Depot and they started popping vines everywhere and now they're reaching almost 3-4 feet long!
We finally figured out where their permanent home will be and will be planting them in the ground today, along with a trellis/arbor my husband made for them to grow up/on.
I can't wait to see the flowers come out in the spring!
I have purchased over 20 Trees/Shrubs etc from Fast Growing Trees and every single one arrived safely and in good health. All of them are doing wonderful! I would and have recommended FGT.com to everyone I know!!

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

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!

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

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

Purple Wisteria
This plant that came in the mail and how it was process really blew me away. After I plant it in ground right away, ( Spring-2015 ) I didn't think it would make it. As time go by, I give a lot of TLC, including some dead-heading. Then new growth of leave start to spreading, following by a few cluster of flowers. Awesome Purple Flowering! Today, it's about five feet tall and two half feet width and still growing with a healthy look. Can't wait for the future mature growth in the coming years with ton of beauty. Great plant to have in your garden. Thanks David Key

I purchased the bare root Purple Wisteria and it arrived quickly and was packaged very carefully (it did not even seem to mind that the delivery man propped it against my house upside down, LOL!!). I potted it and it only took about 2-3 weeks to start budding then WOW, growing faster than I ever expected! Very pleased so far. I had bad luck with wisteria purchased from another site as a seedling, the bare root older plant was definitely a smart move!!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

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.

What is the difference between a Purple Wisteria vs. Amethyst Falls Wisteria?
Carol A on Apr 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Purple Wisteria is Wisteria sinensis, which has the biggest flowers and the longest stems in Wisteria. Amethyst Falls is a cultivar of an American native, Wisteria frutescens. The flower racemes of Amethyst Falls are not as long as those of the Chinese Wisteria and they open a little later, and the plant is a much smaller grower, reaching about 20 to 25 feet in length, versus the 30-50 feet (or more) of the Chinese Wisteria.
I have two wisteria that have never bloomed, been there for about 8 years . What, if anything can I do to get them to bloom?
Wendy H on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: A local landscaper gave me this advice : prune ends about 8",take a broom and beat the whole vine,then take a spade and dig around the outer root ball in a circle. After no blooms for 7 yrs.,we took his advice,doing so in the Fall (in PA),and ,lo and behold,this Spring I had 8 beautiful blossoms that smelled wonderful ! Good luck !
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 to do with wisteria pods?
Louis R on Aug 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can open the wisteria seed pods like peas and harvest the seeds, using them to plant more wisteria on your garden.
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 this purple wisteria the american version or the Chinese version?
kay m on Jun 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is the Chinese version... If you wish to order the American version, see Amethyst Falls Wisteria.
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.
Can the Wisteria tree handle hurricanes?
Carla K on Mar 27, 2015
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.
Can the wisteria be planted free standing or should it be supported by a structure like a trellis or something sturdier?
michele m on Aug 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I did plant mine free standing however when it starts to get a bit taller I do plan on getting a trellis for it to wrap around.
because of the fragrance, do they attract many insect?
michele m on May 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Wisteria can attract both butterflies and insects because of their fragrant blooms.
I have a very large trellis (40 ft or so), will this vine get long enough to cover it? typically, Chinese wisteria can grow very long but your dimensions say only to 30ft. I don't want it to stop short. I have already had that problem with the American Wisteria.
Zelda M on Sep 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We suggest to plant them 4-5ft apart so I would put 8 there. It will be very full and you will have abundant blooms.
how is the mature hight of wisteria from your nursery?
wanda w on May 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: At maturity the Purple Wisteria can reach heights of 20-30ft.
is wisteria a perennial?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, purple wisteria is a perennial; I'm in northern California and the one I purchased last year in June 2013 lost all leaves and looked dead; however, this Spring it has come back full and continues to get more 'lush' as it grows.
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.
Do wisteria vines flower before leafing out?
Sharon O on May 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I believe this depends on the type of wisteria. I just bought what I believe is a Chinese variety last year. While it has buds and looks healthy, it is to early for me to tell if they are flower or leaf buds.
Does this wisteria need to be trellised, or is it sturdy enough to stand alone?
Denise on May 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think there might be a way to groom it to stand alone, but the way it is growing it seems to need to be trellised. I can take a picture if you want, tomorrow when it is light. It really did well, took off!
any problems with bees, wasps, etc?
michelle s on Apr 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Any insect attracted to blooms will be present while the blooms are on, which is a short time. Japanese beetles too. Beautiful vines, I have many, but they do require regular pruning.
when can I expect the plant to bloom???
florence t on Jul 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We bought our Wisteria in December 2013 and it has not bloomed yet. From what I read, it takes 3-5 years before they bloom. Our Purple Wisteria is growing like crazy and beautiful, but no flowers to date. Hope this helps.
We live in NC, the soil here s mostly red clay, when my husband plants he adds mulch he has made from leaves and grass and other additives. Do you think this will do well?
Judith N on Jul 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Judith, I live in Washington state and we do have some clay in our soil here. I compost and use chicken manure, peat moss, and wood chips. These seem to do well for my plants. My wisteria is doing well. Hope this helps.
Is this a tree or a vine? I definitely want a tree, not a vine.
Deborah M on Jun 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Purple Wisteria Vine can be trained to be a tree with pruning. You can research how to do this online or refer to www.plantingdirections.com.
How soon does it bloom? Does it take years?
Dayna on Oct 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I planted my Wisteria in the early spring and didn't plan on seeing any blooms for a few years as I had been told that was how long it would take for the plant to take root.
If you have a Wisteria, make sure you prune it every single Spring as it will help produce more flowers. I took very good care of mine and I got gorgeous blooms that Spring . The flowers don't last for a very long time, but oh my - are the beautiful and smell amazing. Hope this helps!
Is it OK to plant Purple Wisteria in the fall? Will it survive the winter in Zone 7 ( Mocksville, N.C.)?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: While you don't specify when in the fall (earlier is better), it is important to allow the plant to begin to establish its root system as soon as possible. Prepare the planting hole using a mix that contains bone meal and water appropriately. Wisterias are hardy to about 20F, if there are any days (in winter) that are anticipated to get much below that be sure to mulch around the base to keep the ground from freezing. That said, I've grown wisteria at every home I've lived in, with this most recent one being in Maine. My wisteria made it through a winter that went down to -18F, and while it took a while to get going in the spring, it did, and now has grown about 12 feet.
Good luck!
I want something to grow up and over a pergola. Will this wisteria do that or is it a tree??
Cindy H on Apr 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have the tree and the bush. Both tend to vine out. But the tree did not do as well. The bush is covering my trellis very well, looks beautiful, and eveyone loves it.
will this do well in star valley wyoming, when it can get 30 below.what would do well there ?
A shopper on Sep 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Purple Wisteria can thrive in your area. Depending on how harsh your winters are, you may want to protect your plant by placing additional mulch around it during the winter. You can also place burlap around the plant for additional protection.
my wisteria is about is about 15 yrs. old this year it didnt produce well at all,and it never greened and now its dead looking,now there is new grouth sprouting from the groung whats happening?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This past winter was unusually harsh and rough on many plants. It sounds like the growth at the bottom is a sucker. Suckers will pop up from the roots and steal water and nutrients from the main trunk of the tree. Remove the sucker.

Scratch the surface area on the trunk and limbs of your tree very gently with your coin or fingernail. If brown or a dark color is underneath cut those parts of the tree back and it should regrow and recover. If the scratch test reveals a green color then your tree is alive and will recover.
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.
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!
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!
Does this come in dark purple or just light purple flowers?
Jane C on Jun 10, 2014

Will 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.

Trimming & Pruning

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.
