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 my wisteria this spring which is probably not optimum but it is doing very well with my backyard fence giving it some protection from the sweltering Oklahoma sun. It has even been shooting a few blooms this week.

I was blown away by the healthy condition and size of 2 wisteria plants I ordered. They were so well packed and quickly shipped that they barely needed any time to adjust to their new home. One has taken a while to show new growth but the other sprouted new leaves right away and began climbing. I wouldn't hesitate to order from FGT again.

I am very pleased with the large size of the plant and the health of the plant. I would recommend buying this plant from this grower to others. I will most likely buy again from Fast-Growing-Trees.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Amethyst Falls Wisteria

Amethyst Falls Wisteria Planting Diretions

The Amethyst Falls Wisteria (Wisteria frutescens 'Amethyst Falls') is a beautiful blooming vine that is great for all of the joys of wisteria but without the fears of it overtaking your property. This particular type of wisteria is commonly planted in USDA growing zones 5-9. It is drought tolerant, widely adaptable to many soil types and will mature to a height of 20-30 feet and a width of 5-8 feet. The Amethyst Falls prefers full to partial sun and to be spaced roughly 10-15 feet apart as to not inhibit their moderate growth rate. Their flowers can reach lengths of up to 12 inches long!

Choosing a location: The ideal spot for planting wisteria should be a sunny area with fertile, moist, well draining soil. Wisteria thrives in almost any soil type as long as it is well draining and receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight.

Planting directions: Anytime from spring until fall is the ideal time for planting your wisteria.

1) Dig a hole that is three times as wide as the root ball and just as deep (if planting more than one, space the plants 10-15 feet apart).
2) Prior to planting your wisteria add plenty of compost or well-rotted manure to your soil to improve drainage and soil fertility.
3) When placing your wisteria in the hole, try to spread the roots out a bit by gently combing them with your fingers.
4) Gently hold the plant while making sure it’s vertical in the hole and back fill the hole with your other hand, working the soil around the roots to avoid air pockets. Then gently firm the soil down with both hands, but don’t pack the soil too tight as it could harm the root system.
5) Make a rim of soil around the edge of the planting hole. This basin-like ring will catch and hold water channeling it directly down to the root system.
6) Give the wisteria’s planting site a thorough soaking of water and cover with mulch to retain moisture.

Watering: During your first year the wisteria will benefit from regular watering while the roots become established. An inch of rainfall per week is recommended which equals out to about 4 gallons of water weekly. Water your wisteria in the morning or evening on hot, summer days to allow the plant to soak up the water before it evaporates. A slow trickling from the hose works best so the soil can absorb water without run off. Once fully established the natural rainfall in your area should be sufficient for your wisteria unless in times of drought, then you will need to water once every two weeks.

Fertilizing: Your wisteria will require little fertilizing if any at all, excessive fertilizing will inhibit the blooming. If you have poor or sandy soil then consider using a small amount of fertilizer like formula 5-10-10 or 5-10-5. Feed your wisteria about 3/4 cup per square yard each year during the spring.

Pruning: Wisteria (unlike many plants) needs to be pruned twice a year, typically once in late winter and again in mid-summer. Winter pruning is to prepare the flowering spurs for the upcoming season. Summer pruning keeps the long, whip-like shoots under control encouraging them to become flowering spurs. Don’t concern yourself too much if you make a mistake in the pruning your first time around. Wisteria is a forgiving, vigorous grower and the next season will give you another chance.

virginia t on Oct 15, 2017
Based on other reviews on the Internet, I'm a little confused. I thought this was a tree. Many reviewers are saying that it is a vine that they had grow on a trellis. Which one is correct?
Beth E on Mar 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a vine. It can be grown on a sturdy pergola or arch, or it can be pruned fairly rigorously and trained to have a trunk with the leaves and flowers on top. When grown like this, it is usually kept under 6-8 feet. Amethyst Falls comes from a native Wisteria, and grows much smaller (20 feet or so if unpruned) than the commonly seen Chinese Wisteria, which can grow over 50-60 feet high if left on its own.
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
Lanny H on Aug 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If your concrete is 5to6 inches thick, you will probably be OK. The Amethyst Falls is not nearly as aggressive as the Chinese Wisteria, but it is still a pretty strong grower.
Is it as beautiful as it looks?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No.But even more distressing is your declining to post the negative review.Certainly does not impress as far as your integrity goes.Robin Sewell
I have not had any blooms in 4yrs????
Leonard R on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have had a wisteria vine for ten years. It did nothing for the first 3-4 years then I trimmed it back and it's been flowering and growing every year. Try cutting it back a bit.
What zones do these tolerate and not winter-kill?
Joan R on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These are suitable for zones 5-9. Here is a hardiness zone map to see where your area is located.
How invasive is this plant?
Jackie H on Jul 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, this is the American version of the wisteria and is non-invasive.

The Chinese version van be invasive in some parts of the country, and is an aggressive growing in other parts.
it shows it grows in zones 5 through 9 but yet is says it does not ship to Arizona.. why..?
connie on May 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Every state has its own laws and regulations about shipping live plant material into its area, and those with a big agricultural industry have the strictest regulations. Arizona prohibits shipping of this product into their state, and it could be for a number of reasons: where it was grown, the potting material, the variety of plant,, etc.
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
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.
What is the best wisteria to buy for my pergola?
Clare T on Apr 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I bought two Amethyst Falls Wisteria for my pergola and did one on each side. I planted them in May 2015, and last year (2016) they reached the top of the pergola and started moving horizontally along the top, after I tied them down. They have done really well with very little maintenance. And I had blooms the first year I planted them.
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.
Second year, no blooms? But it's full and growing well. Seems to love the area it's in.
Lindi B on May 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: mine is just starting to bud, no blooms yet, but the spring weather has been funky this year. last year was my first year with them and they did get a couple of flowers. I thought I heard that year 2 is a growth year for flowing trees and they may not flower. fingers crossed~! good luck to you.
Not sure where to plant them. Close to my pergola? And how close if I do that
Michele on May 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I suggest a foot away, taking into account that the wisteria's trunk becomes quite thick after many years. Also, if your pergola has a concrete footing, as mine does, the roots will need a little more room.
Will this vine's roots damage basement walls and/or grow through the cracks/grout?
Charles on Sep 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am in Florida with no basement but have planted on the corner of the house. It is doing well but only one flower this 2nd year. So far no root damage but keep an eye on the vines that grow fast when they are sneaking away from where they should be heading!
Do you sell a RED wisteria?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we only carry Wisterias in pink and purple.
When will it bloom? Mine is 4 years old and nothing
Weezie on May 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Weezie, We got ours last year or the year before and it is absolutely covered with purple blooms ready to burst out. We are in a Suburb of Chicago where we had a mild winter and warm spring. We are really happy with ours and hope yours blooms soon. I haven't done anything special to ours except to keep it watered well during very hot spells.
How do these come how big are they and how long before they bloom? Would they go up 8' lattice wall and then over a slatted roof???
Randita on Aug 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I purchased one about 2 years ago.It arrived via UPS, very well packaged, healthy and about 1'-3' tall. I planted it on the East side of a 12' wrought iron trellis and the first year it reached the top. I wind it around the metal "slats"& use plastic ties to anchor it to the trellis and keep trying to train it to go across the top. It bloomed once the first year and this year it will bloom twice. We purchased another one this year and I planted it on the West side of the same trellis. I'm training it to to climb and I'm sure by the end of the season it will be half way up the trellis. By next summer, the trellis will probably be completely filled. You'll probably have to do the same thing with your's-keep weaving it up the lattice wall & over the slatted roof.
I have a metal arbor. I planted 2 clematis on each side. Could the wisteria be added? Would it choke out the clematis?
Jean R on May 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have a wrought iron arbor and have a Wisteria a Clematis and Morning Glories on the same side. They don't choke each other out & my Clematis is actually growing higher than ever because it's following the Wisteria. I planted the Clematis first but it would only grow half way up the trellis so I added the Morning Glories. I still wasn't happy with the look so I finally bought the Wisteria and they are all co-existing well and something is always blooming all year long.
Will a cyclone fence hold up a wisteria vine ?
Tony D on Apr 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have mine growing on a small trellis up to the top of a pergola and it is holding fine for two years now.
How long does the vining. Winsteria bloom I have the amethyst fall?
Brenda M on Mar 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: i purchased mine 2 years ago , it bloomed right away and that was still during the drought
my blossoms bloomed for over 2 month
the blossoms are not as big as the picture , maybe because of the weather
in the summertime we have avg. 20 days over 100 degrees . i added some fertilizer spikes this year
Is this an evergreen?
Christy on May 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. This is a vine. It has a woody base, but it is a vine that climbs and will produce purple flowers.
I have a very high wall that separates our yard from our neighbors. It's an eyesore but I would love to plant Amethyst Falls Wysteria plants would they climb the wall?
Debbi M on Apr 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would say definately if the wall is a little rough. If you need just attach some lathing strips or chicken wire to the wall. The vines attach to just about anything. Mine are in bloom right now and they are beautiful. I am growing them up over a an arbor we built. I can't wait to see them in a couple more years. Caution they are aggressive in summer and require frequent trimming. In winter they are dormant and loose their leaves.
How often does this bloom?
Patricia J on Jan 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Once in the spring. Very lovely. Attracts bees and hummingbirds.
why are my wisteria falls leaves yellow?
Bianka G on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Could they not be draining well? Mine are on a slight incline and are watered often but they do drain well. I also buy triple phosphate on line. They have grown 10 feet since planted and have beautiful purple flowers. They are also a great privacy fence. Good luck!
I planted this as a tree. Do I need to remove the green tape that is around it and let the branches fall? I was worried about taking the tape off.
