Wisteria Plants Are Best Viewed at Full Bloom

Wisteria's genus comprises flowering plants in the legume family; within its genus are climbers that produce cascades of fragrant flowers ranging from mauve to white. They are best viewed at full bloom, as decorations draping over a pergola or scrambling along a sunny wall, even an archway during the spring and early summer.

While the Northern American wisteria and the Chinese and Japanese wisteria are hard to tell apart next to the former, the best way to differentiate these species is to examine their growth rate closely. Between the Chinese and North American wisteria, the latter is less likely to cause an overgrowth. Regarding the shape of their seed pods, the fuzzy ones belong to the Chinese wisteria, while the smooth seed pods belong to the North American wisteria.

Wisteria May Take Quite A Long Time To Grow, But They Yield Abundant Results

The wisteria and its flowers can be grown from seed, but wisteria plants grown from seed take a few years to reach maturity and produce flowers, so it would be best to wait until the ideal season to start planting. You can use an alternative such as purchasing established wisteria plants or beginning a cutting if you do not belong to the patient types. Their vines require an infallible structure for support, such as a wooden trellis or a pergola; sometimes, mature vines can be so heavy they end up putting a dent or breaking their support structure.

Pruning will be an excellent option for you if you need abundant flowering, as wisteria only blooms on new wood. If you intend on a more formal appearance, only prune during the summer after using traditional flowering methods—as wisteria produces its flowers on new growth shoot cuttings, leave no more than about six inches of growth. The entire plant can be tidied, trained, and tied in to guarantee no loose, trailing shoots.

A wisteria's flowers shouldn't be expected for the first two to three years after planting, as wisteria can take a long time to bloom. Gardeners sometimes resort to shoveling it about eight to ten inches into the ground, half one foot and a half away from the main trunk, to slice some of the roots. Often, frigid winter temperatures can also land an effect on the wisteria's blooms. But if extreme measures are not your forte, then your patience and tender loving care to these plants may garner better results—though, as mentioned, a wisteria's blooming interval may take a long time.
