Wisteria Vine is famously known as a rapid climber and explosive grower, Wisteria sinesis, is a hardy plant favored by novice and seasoned gardeners alike.
Wisteria Vine requires a structure to grow onto. Grows 25-30 feet. Will grow in most soils. Rapid growth rate. Wisteria vines cascade flowers onto any structure and hail from Asia and North America. Used as decoration on the sides of homes, or on a wire for petal showers. Wisteria is bushy and virescent. They spill out streams of beautiful violet flowers that hang from long, green stems.
With signature blossoms of violet blue and lavender, Wisteria sinesis is a twining vine, the location of the plant is incredibly talented.
Smaller shoots extend from the main vine, and leaves extend alternately in each direction from those stems. Leaves are 15 to 35 centimeters long, and are feather shaped, much like those of a fern. At the tip of each shoot is a feather shaped leaf running perpendicular to the other leaves on the stem. They are dark green in color.
The Wisteria Vine produces flowers in a distinctive structure- clusters, also known as racemes. The group of flowers are delicate and sprout lush blooms from mid to late spring. The size of the clusters can reach 9 to 20 inches long. A twining vine, the Wisteria requires sturdy support and regular pruning, flourishing optimally in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5 through 9. The Wisteria does not respond favorably to cold weather and needs full sun although it will tolerate part-shade.
It is extremely drought resistant, suitable for beginners because of acclimatization to poor growing conditions.
The blooms of each cluster are a bluish purple tinge with individual flowers contributing to a cluster formation. The group in full bloom resembles feather plumes, a curved silhouette comprised of a colony of flowers all delicately draped. Different varieties of wisteria have flowers in white, blue and pink tones. The stems range from a medium-hued green to brown hue with the leaves a muted green with faint yellow undertones. Ideal for covering walls because of tremendous growth ability.
