Wisteria Range

Wisteria are robust hardy plants which require a sunny position to flower well. All wisteria flowers are scented. Pruning is not a problem, once you have trained the young shoots to cover your structure/support, just shorten the growths of summer in late June or early July to six pairs of leaves. In winter, further prune back to 3 pairs. The summer pruning opens the wood to sunlight to allow it to ripen for the production of good flowers. Frost may damage the flowers.

We only offer grafted plants, this is the most reliable way of producing flowering plants at a young stage (typically 3 years) See all our varieties in flower in late April/early May
