Wisteria is a beautiful flowering plant that has traditionally been grown in China and Japan for over one thousand years.
The blooms are most commonly a deep mauve or purple but other shades right down from a pale pink to a pure white are available too. It’s easy to grow and very hardy despite the delicate beauty of the flowers and the blooms have a lovely fragrance.
Make sure you start off your Wisteria with a live plant.If you use seeds it will take ten to fifteen years to bloom, instead of three years.
One of the most popular ways to show off your Wisteria is to use Trellis. You can pop it against fences, sheds, walls and add it to your pot so that your wisteria grows up the trellis.

The pot should allow room for growth – the tip is that it should be at least 3 to 4 times the size of your plant’s root ball. Cover your plant well with the soil, water well and place it in an area where it receives full or partial sun.
