Japanese Wisteria Amethyst Blue
Japanese Amethyst Blue Wisteria,
Shipped bare root sizes vary from 6-18''. We try our hardest to ship the tallest possible.
It blooms heavily and frequently, producing a second, smaller display in late summer.
These bare root are cutting-grown from flowering wood to ensure bloom at an early age. All bloom in late spring to early summer. A rapid, vigorous grower to 25 feet, perfect for creating a spectacular show on a pergola or against a wall.
These tough, drought-resistant vines require minimal care and don't even need to be fertilized. Plant in a sunny location near a strong support. Prune after flowering and again in late winter if you wish to control its size.
Wisteria are easy to train into standard or "tree" form. Just attach the trunk of the plant to a sturdy 5- or 6-foot stake and trim all but the topmost branches. Prune as needed to keep the vine in bounds. The goal is to acheive a bushy top growth that is supported by the vine's trunk. Remove the stake once the standard is established. Zones 4-9
