A New Twist on an Old Favorite

Wisteria is known to grow to colossal heights in warm climates in the south, but practically everyone can own this lavender beauty in tree form because its size can be managed. At maturity, it reaches heights of just 6-10 feet with an 8-10 foot spread.   Our fast-growing Wisteria Trees have been masterfully created by grafting a Wisteria vine on top of a standard tree trunk. and root system.

Wisteria is a flowering woody vine that puts on a beautiful display of color each year between April and June.  Fragrant violet-blue flowers blanket the Wisteria Tree with delicate blooms that dangle in weeping clusters.  They're beautifully dainty, resembling crystals hanging from a chandelier.   A Wisteria Tree in bloom is a graceful and picturesque superstar that really turns on the charm.

Hassle Free
The Wisteria Tree is hardy 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, so there's never any need for harmful chemical sprays. It will adapt 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.

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.

Various Options for Planting
This small tree adds a beautiful touch to 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 you and your guests congregate. The Wisteria's lightly perfumed blossoms drift through the air, reminiscent of warm summers in the south.

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.

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!

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

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.

If your weather is anything comparable to what we experienced here this past winter, I'm sure you'll be happy with your purchase! :-)
