To add to my review I am very satisfied with the product and the company. Yes I recommend it. Josette
Do not ask me that question now, because I have not yet got the wisteria.However I will tell you about an order I made few years back from you.It was great, very well packed. The wisteria was healthy and I trained it to be a tree. It was gorgeous with great medium purple and lots of blossom, even in it’s first year. I cannot send a picture because I sold the house and moved in another state.Also thanks for a great service answering questions etc... Josette

My wisteria
My plant came with 2 leaves left on it. The rest were laying dead in the box it came in but I planted it immediately. I'm watching it every day. I live in Vegas and until a plant has gone through all 4 seasons, even though it should do well in my zone, I will be watching like a hawk.

I love this plant
I only received this plant about a month ago and it has taken off. We have pretty sandy soil but it is doing quite well.
There has been a lot of new growth. I am hoping it survives our northern Indiana winters.

Crisp but hardy.
It was quite crisp when it arrived. Most of the leaves were shriveld and fell off. Four days in the summer heat was rough. I trimmed it and soaked it and waited a few days before putting it out in the sun, I didn’t want to scorch the already stressed leaves that were left. I planted it after four days and it now seems to be doing fine as it has new growth. The root system was very hardy. I would probably order trees earlier in the spring so the four day journey won’t be so hot for the trees.

mixed review
The 5 wisteria plants I purchased arrived last Saturday. The packaging was secure but the plants were not happy. "Bone" dry leaves crinkled and root ball with absolutely no moisture and some out of the pot. I planted them as was directed and hope they will spring back to life. I have been watering them deeply every day since our temperature is in the 100's daily. It was very sad to see their condition. the root ball should have been more secure and more moisture added. The seller should know that shipping in mid summer requires better protection especially on a trip across the country.

A Happy Wisteria
I have planted the wisteria into a planter and placed a reinforcement frame for the wisteria to intertwine on. The plant is growing well but have not yet budded any flowers. The plant looks very healthy and happy growing. It is a very good plant.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Purple Wisteria

Purple Wisteria Planting Diretions

The Wisteria is a beautiful springtime blooming vine that can be trained as a tree or shrub. It's known for its gorgeous clusters of cascading flowers that provide a lovely fragrant atmosphere. Wisteria are truly a feast for the senses once they take off in the landscape. Wisteria vines are very easy growing plants for zones 4-9. With proper pruning they can be formed into a stunning display for your home and reward you with many years of pleasure in your garden or landscape. Wisteria trees can reach a mature height of about 8-10 feet in height and width, while wisteria vines can reach 20-30 feet in height and width (in some cases even longer).

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. Over all, wisteria in its entire splendor is a wonderful, beautiful addition to your garden or landscape!

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.
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

Louis R on Aug 2, 2014

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.
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?

BEST ANSWER: Anytime is good to plant it so long as the low temp remains around 50 degrees. Any soil will do so long as you give it water.
Will this grow along my chain link fence nicely? It says it grows to 20 feet in height.
Maria L on Aug 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will grow very nicely on a fence.
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.
is wisteria a perennial?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2014
I want to know if this wisteria can be planted as a tree and can it stand on its own without having to spread over anything?
lexi190 on Jun 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Bought ours almost two years ago, and so far it's still essentially a vine, although thicker at the base (maybe about 2" in diameter). If you train it to be a tree, it may eventually wind up that way. Ours is over a trellis arch entering a path in the garden, we wanted the coverage.
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'm in Louisville, KY (40243). Does the Purple Wisteria bloom the same year planted? If not how long to blooming?; Do I need a trellis or does this plant stand alone?
[email protected] V on Mar 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I planted my purple wisteria in June 2015. Pruned the plant in February 2016 and had in the summertime already some blooms. Small ones but very colorful. I enjoy my plant. Yes you need to have a trellis, the plant takes over right away and finds their way to grow. You will love it.

what plant food do you feed wisteria plants?
Kathy R on Jun 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can use rose type plant food. Wysteria thrives on a certain amount of neglect and do well without any food. It's best not to move them once planted. If the plant or flowers look distressed, then give them plant food. I'd they appear healthy, let them be. I haven't given my wisteria any plant food and it is thriving. I hope this helps you.
what shape and type of trellis would work best for my wisteria tree?
donna on Jun 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Donna. I have my wisteria growing against a stainless steel pole cemented in the ground. The pole is about 7' tall which is as tall as I will allow my trees to grow - lots of pruning. Pruning is recommended twice a year, but I do more than that, especially because they are young. I've grown wisteria in other places I've lived and I let it go really big. If you are going to let it grow big, then you need substantial support and preferably something with longevity in mind. As to shape, that's really a matter of personal taste. A quick search of google images for "trained wisteria" will give you a good idea of the different styles and shapes that can be utilized. Hope this helps a bit.

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?
Ron on Jul 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello Judith,
The wisteria we bought looks like a really hardy plant. It has survived two of our harsh winters and is growing in mostly sandy soil that I have not really amended. I suspect if you mulch and add feritlizer it will take off once it establishes itself. May take a couple of years.
