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.

It’s easy to grow and very hardy despite the delicate beauty of the flowers and the blooms have a lovely fragrance.

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.

Once Wisteria establishes itself, it is a very vigorous plant and it is a favorite for use on fences and trellises like this one on Pinterest.

You can pop it against fences, sheds, walls and add it to your pot so that your wisteria grows up the trellis and has something hardy to aid with its growing. There are Trellis Kits on Amazon here.

When it comes to your Wisteria, you will need good drainage in your pot or container so be sure to drill some drainage holes in the base if they’re needed.

The pot should allow room for growth and a good tip is that it should be at least 3 to 4 times the size of your plant’s root ball.

You should also cover your plant well with the soil and then give it a decent drink of water prior to placing it in an area where it receives full or partial sun.
