The Fragrant, Reblooming Wisteria

Most types of Wisterias only bloom in the spring, but the Blue Moon Wisteria blooms in the spring, and twice in the summer. While your neighbor's wisterias are done blooming, yours will brighten up the landscape two more times.

Large fragrant blue blooms will cover your fence or trellis all season long, while their sweet floral fragrance will drift through your neighborhood, making your yard the best smelling in the neighborhood all summer. Wisteria blooms will attract the attention of butterflies and passersby. Everyone will have to keep coming back to look at their elegant beauty again.

They are climbers that don't need much space to thrive, and they are easy to maintain. They'll quickly grow on a fence, trellis, or even the side of your deck to fill your summer with tons of fragrant blooms. Our wisterias arrive with a strong root system, so they'll be ready to quickly take off as soon as their planted.

Best of all these wisterias are easy to grow, they will adapt to a large variety of different soils, they are drought tolerant, and they are even cold hardy! Blue Moon Wisterias laugh at the cold by withstanding temperatures down to -20 degrees (F). Plant a few around your garden, and watch them thrive.

This is the only reblooming wisteria, so they sell out fast! Order yours today, before they're gone.

All Well with Wisteria
I have kept the two plants in a holding bed while we do work on their permanent location near our front door. They look fine, and I'm looking forward to seeing them thrive next spring.

Blue Moon Wisteria
I was really worried about ordering a wisteria plant that would be shipped to me. I love Wisteria and have always had good luck; but I had never ordered in this way. The plants arrived in good condition and even though it took me awhile to get them in place (in the ground) due to excessive rains, the Blue Moon's took off and are doing just fine. They are doing so well in fact; that I'd like to buy a couple more pretty soon. LOVE THEM.

Healthy and vigorous.
The very first season in the ground and this vine put out at least twelve feet of vigorous growth on multiple stems. It even gave a few blooms, which I wasn't expecting for such a young plant. So far I would give it five stars for health and vigor. It gets full southwest exposure where it's located - certainly seems to thrive in that location.

Love It!
I am very happy with my Blue Moon Wisteria; so much so that I purchased an arbor for it. I had every intention of training it as a tree; however, it was so full and beautiful I didn't have the heart to trim it down to do so. It is vigorous and hopefully it will like its new home and have its fun climbing my arbor. I worry going from pot to ground didn't send it into shock. Can't wait to see how it does.

Beautiful!
My wisteria is now two years old and I couldn't be more pleased. It blooms three times, although the third was substantially less. It has withstood drought and torrential rains. Very little to no maintenance other than keeping it cut back occasionally.

What nutrients should I use?
I bought one this year, I live in Gorham Maine and it has been a very dry year and it is seems to be having difficulty growing. I do water it often. But I believe it needs some nutrients. Any suggestions?

Great flowers the first year
For the whole winter I really thought the plant was dead. And then, pouf, it was really alive, with new greenery and very large, perfumed flowers. I have tried Wisteria from competitors and they either died or put out pathetic flowers. Blue Moon is beautiful.

Sat in box for an extra week
I was out of town and my husband didn't even notice the box in the foyer and didn't give it to the landscaper, so it sat til I got home over a week later. It was growing in the box!! Even had new buds. My landscaper put it outside in the shade to slowly acclimate it to be transplanted into the yard. I was truly amazed at how healthy they were!

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Blue Moon Wisteria


Blue Moon Wisteria Planting Diretions

The Blue Moon Wisteria (Wisteria Macrostachya 'Blue Moon') is a vine that produces large, drooping clusters of blue flowers. They are deciduous and recommended for USDA growing zones 4-9, making them very cold hardy, down to -20 degrees! Growing to heights of up to 25 feet and 6-8 feet wide, be sure to provide this fast growing vine with something to climb on such as a trellis, fence or pergola. Once matured, look for your wisteria to bloom 3 times a year, once in the spring and twice in the summer! The floral fragrance of these blooms will be sure to attract butterflies and even passerbys!

Choosing a location: The ideal spot for planting wisteria should be a sunny area with fertile, moist, well draining soil. Wisteria thrive 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) Be sure there are no other plants/trees nearby as they may be overtaken, as wisteria vines are vigorous climbers.
2) 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).
3) Prior to planting your wisteria add plenty of compost or well-rotted manure to your soil to improve drainage and soil fertility.
4) When placing your wisteria in the hole, try to spread the roots out a bit by gently combing them with your fingers.
5) 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.
6) 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.
7) Give the wisteria's planting site a thorough soaking of water and cover with mulch to retain moisture.
*Wisteria trees may require staking while they become established before they can stand on their own in heavy winds. After you plant your wisteria tree, drive your stake 6-12 inches down roughly 1/2 inch away from the trunk. Secure the tree with planter's tape every 8 inches.

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.

Remove poorly placed wisteria tree branches entirely and cut the current seasons growth back to about 5-6 large buds (leave the stubs about 6 inches long). This will help to turn some of the leaf buds into flowering buds. 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.

Your wisteria will bring you many years of joy with its beautiful cascading flowers. It will also challenge your pruning skills since pruning is necessary to encourage new growth and blooms. In some cases people are known to enjoy eating the blooms, as they are fragrant and sweet.

The leaves have been known to make an enjoyable tea when dried and steeped. One of the most common things to use the flowers for is in tossed salads since they look great and add to its delicate flavor. Overall, wisteria in its entire splendor is a wonderful, beautiful addition to your garden or landscape!

This climbing Blue Moon Wisteria is a perfect addition to any home, not only does it blossom beautifully, it contains an aroma that brings me back to childhood.
Andrea M on Mar 13, 2016
This was definitely pricier than other plants I have ordered before, but from my research I felt confident that putting the money up front for a healthy larger plant will totally pay off. I have turned my front yard into a vegetable garden, and I want to keep the balance between function and beauty and not only will this be great to attract bees to my garden , but I think this will also turn some heads as none of my neighbors have any flowering vines growing at their house.

We have a pergola over our hot tub. The yard is very pretty but the pergola and deck are so plain, I thought the wisteria would add a little color and additional shade to the deck and hot tub...this one seems to be the prettiest and it blooms multiple times throughout the year.

JoAnn O on Aug 10, 2018
I want to buy a wisteria, but it's only Feb and I wouldn't want to plant it until April. Any suggestions on how to deal with this dilemma?
bill t on Feb 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Bill, there is quite a few solutions to your question:
1. Sometimes the company will comply with requests to ship the plants to you at the time you want. Also almost always the company will ship the plant to you when it is the right time for you to plant. You think it might be too cold to plant the tree at that time, but actually the roots will get a head start and the top will follow when the weather warms.
2. If you want to plant the Wisteria in April and you receive it before than, just put the plant in a small plant and keep it in a protected place, like the garage near a window or a room.
But again, the company knows when the right time to ship to you location. Hope this helps, John

North central Washington. When do I plant the blue moon wisteria ? Is it deer resistant?
Cynthia O on Jul 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Most people prefer to plant in the early spring or fall. You can also plant in the summer, however, during hotter spells give it a little extra water. The wisteria are seldom severely damaged by deer.
Will it climb up a wall if a trellis or arbor is not provided? Thanks
agnes h on Jun 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. It's branching is more like a tree and doesn't have the "fingers" needed to grip a Surface like a vine does. The branches, however will wind themselves around anything available no matter what direction. If there is nothing it will just run along the ground. It has to have a trellis or fence rails, etc., to climb. You can dictate the direction it goes by supplying what it needs to climb in the direction you want it to go.
Can you grow the Blue Moon Wisteria indoors is it good for Bonsai ?
Colleen S on Oct 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I believe you could grow this plant indoors if you still had the appropriate amount of sunlight needed. As far as Bonsai-I'm not sure. My blue moon wisteria is outside and doing very well. i want it to grow and cover my gazebo. I heard the wisteria can really take over and climb.
Are the leaves of it ever green?
Gunel D on Jul 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. Wisteria leaves look similar to lilac bush leaves.
We are planning on planting it on the ground beneath our wooden deck, will it cause any trouble (moisture, insects..) to the deck?
Larry Z on Nov 10, 2015

So this is more like a vine, it would need something to climb on?? Its not for a stand alone tree in your front yard??
Linda K on Aug 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is more of a vine so it would need something to cling to and grow up.
Are there techniques to train vines to climb arbor? I have a very nice Blue Moon from FGT's.
LSMITH2566 on Aug 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I used a simple trellis to get my vines to grow up onto columns to my pergola. Until they were long enough I used cloth ties to support them and hold them up. They naturally climb and twist around structures, so it is easy to lead them where you want them to go! Good luck, mine are doing great.

I am in zone 10, Will my wisteria plant grow well in Altadena, California?
niese on Aug 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Onesha
Unfortunately, Most varieties of wisteria (including Blue Moon Wisteria) are zone 4-9. I know on the east coast it does not do well in zone 10. It doesn't get enough chill hours to bloom well. We carry a Mandevilla "Crimson Red" and the Passion Fruit Vine both will do well in your area.Please do not hesitate to contact our sales department for further help at 1 888 504-2001.
