A New Twist on an Old Favorite

Graceful and picturesque hardly describes the unparalleled splendor of a Wisteria Tree in bloom. Dignified and lovely year-round, this superstar really turns on the charm when lilac-colored spring blooms provide a breathtaking effect that will continually steal the show.

Wisteria is a beautiful flowering woody vine, and the Wisteria Tree has been masterfully created by grafting a Wisteria vine on top of a standard tree trunk and root system.

Sometime between April and June, fragrant violet-blue flowers blanket the Wisteria Tree. These round delicate blooms are dangling, weeping clusters that give the same effect as a crystal hanging from a chandelier. Beautifully dainty!

The Wisteria Tree is hardy, thriving in zones 4-9. This beauty is so easy to grow it practically takes care of itself. Deer and drought resistant and virtually unaffected by disease and pests, there's never any need for harmful chemical sprays.

The Wisteria Tree adapts to a wide range of soil types, but performs best when it's in fertile, moist and well-drained earth. Vigorous and fast-growing, this tree thrives in full sun to partial shade.

Reaching mature heights of just 6-10 feet with an 8-10 foot spread, this small tree is perfect for planter beds amid a mixed border of perennials, bulbs or annuals. You may just want to keep this lovely specimen near your deck or terrace, or any outdoor living area where people congregate and can enjoy the Wisteria's lightly perfumed blossoms.

In tree form, Wisteria vines are easily controlled with a small amount of regular clipping. This will also ensure continued blooming and to maintain the desired size and shape. We do this for you when you first receive your Wisteria and moderate pruning throughout the year will ensure you keep your wisteria manageable.

All our plants and trees are grown with tender loving care and given extra time to ensure safe delivery of a strong healthy specimen. Order your Wisteria Tree today, for an unusual treat in the garden.

very beautiful wisteria tree. At first I was not happy with it since I expected a bigger trunk tree. However the tree seems to be well rooted. I bought it last fall and now it has about more than 50 buds. Haven't seen the flower yet, but I am sure they will be very beautiful

The growth rate has been relatively fast and very lush. Of course, it has not flowered yet. That will happen next Spring. Overall, I am very pleased with the shape of the growth and am anxiously awaiting its first bloom in my garden.

Beautiful leafy green vine
I live in San Diego -- you don't see too many wisteria trees here but I love the clusters of grape-shaped flowers. I purchased some trees and was pleased at how quickly they began to sprout beautiful green leaves and vines. I am training them to grow over the garage doors.

We haven't seen flowers yet -- it is too soon -- but I am looking forward to it! The trees arrived just as described and grew just as promised. Thank you!

My Wisteria tree has grown about 3' since I bought it about 6 months ago. I have it growing on a trellis.

Lovely little tree.
The little tree arrived promptly and in great shape. It was planted the day received and has already put on new little leaves so I know it is very healthy...This size was as expected--about 3 1/2 feet tall, and I am looking forward to having a lovely and larger plant come spring.
I am very happy I bought it.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Wisteria - Tree Form

Wisteria - Tree Form Planting Diretions

The Wisteria Tree is a perfect addition to your space if you do not have a solid structures that allow for the Wisteria vine to grow. In the spring season it produces large, drooping clusters of lavender or violet-blue blooms that give off a sweet fragrance. The trees grow to 6-10 feet tall, 8-10 feet wide and do best when planted in USDA growing zones 4-9. Wisteria can be toxic to dogs, cats and even horses if it is ingested so be sure take that into account if you have multiple animals.

Choosing a location: Wisteria trees will grow in moist soils, but prefer fertile, well-draining soil. A location where it will receive full sun (6-8 hours) is key to getting the most flower production. It will grow in partial sun, but it will likely not flower.

Planting Instructions:
1) Dig a hole as deep as the root ball and twice as wide.
2) Mix in compost with your native soil to improve nutrients.
3) Place the plant in the hole ensuring it is straight and begin back filling the hole, watering every few inches to prevent air pockets from forming.
4) Once the hole has been completely filled, lightly pat down the soil.
5) Apply a layer of mulch around the plant to help to retain moisture. Be sure to there is a 2-3 inch gap between the mulch and main stem to avoid promoting fungus and rot.

Watering:  While establishing, give the tree a deep watering 1-2 times a week. The Purple Wisteria is fairly drought tolerant and once established, will need less water. The roots will also look for water from nearby gardens with a regular water supply.

Fertilization:  Wisteria is an aggressive grower and doesn’t require regular fertilizing. Each spring, a layer of compost can be applied under the plant along with a 2-inch layer of mulch to help with moisture retention and to control weeds. If you decide to fertilize, be sure to apply a fertilizer lower in nitrogen as this will promote more leaves but less flowers.

Pruning:  The Purple Wisteria will need quite a bit of pruning to encourage it to grow into a tree. Promptly remove any suckers from the base of the tree to encourage the growth of the main stem. As the tree grows, remove any lower shoots to maintain the tree form so that all the growth occurs at the top. The top of the tree will also need to be pruned periodically to keep it from taking over and getting too heavy. Pruning is best done in early spring and maintenance can be done throughout the summer.

Staking:  Your tree will need to be staked to provide it extra support while growing and from blowing over during high winds. Be sure to drive the stake into the ground 6-12 inches deep and ½ inch away from the stem. Secure the trunk of the tree at several points along the stake. As the tree grows larger, be sure to replace the stake with a larger, more sturdy stake. It’s recommended to use a steel pipe or a 4x4 piece of wood to prevent it from leaning. Do not use pressure treated wood as it will leach a chemical from the treating into the soil.

Pests:  Some pests and diseases that are common with the Purple Wisteria include aphids, scale and Japanese beetles. Spraying the plant with a garden hose daily will help to detach aphids from the plant and also apply Neem Oil to help suffocate scale. An insecticide can be utilized to deter beetles.

How does it do with snow and winter?
Morgz on Aug 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Morgan, I have two of the Wisteria trees; one of which I have had for over a year and the other, which was purchased as a bare root, was purchased & planted late last Fall. We had lots of snow and cold weather here in Virginia Beach this past winter and I am pleased to say that both are doing very well! If your weather is anything comparable to what we experienced here this past winter, I'm sure you'll be happy with your purchase! :-)
Does it bloom if planted to close to a pine tree?
It only gets maybe 4 hours of sun...
Laura C on Jun 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Wisteria Trees will do fine in full to partial sunlight, but the flowers will do best with at least 6 hours of sunlight a day.
Are your wisteria trees grafted?
Tracie P on Sep 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No they are not grafted. They are a vine trained to be a tree.
