Wisteria Plants Are Lovely & Weeping With Blooming Cascades
Turn your porch, backyard, pathway, or outdoor entertainment space into a romantic living space with the weeping, botanical shade, perfumed scents, and cascading, flowery vines of the Wisteria plant. Wisteria is a member of the pea family and grows in either tree or single trunk form. Both the tree and the single trunk form boast vibrant, beautiful, fragrant draping blooms of pink, white, lilac-blue, or purple flowers in the spring and can grow up to 10 feet or more in a single year. The most common forms of this plant include Chinese, Japanese, and Amethyst Falls.
The Chinese vine is a woody, twining vine that climbs up tree trunks, etc., in a clockwise direction. The vine is smooth, grayish-brown, with fine white hairs. The leaves of the vine are egg-shaped with tapering tips. It flowers, seeds, and fruits in April and blooms beautiful cascading clusters of 6-12 lavender to purple flowers. It grows well in a variety of soils but thrives best in deep, loamy, well-drained soil. That is a great vine to climb trees, shrubs, and artificial structures.
The Japanese vine is a woody, thin twining vine that climbs tree trunks in a counter-clockwise direction. The leaves of the vine are egg-shaped with vital tapering tips. It flowers, seeds, and fruits in April producing purple to blue in color flowers. Flowers open from the base to the tip and cascade 1-3 ft in length with .06-.07 long flowers on 0.6-0.8 long stalks. It prefers full sun but will continue to grow in partial shade. Preferred soil is deep, loamy, well-drained soil but will still grow in a variety of soils—this is an excellent vine for climbing shrubs, trees, and manufactured structures.
The Amethyst Falls is a cousin to both the Chinese and Japanese vines but requires more minor pruning. And, while most vines can take up to 10 years to begin flowering, this vine begins flowering at year one. Like its cousins, the Amethyst Falls blooms clusters of lavender-blue flowers but cascades in a waterfall fashion, hence its name. This vine is perfect for attracting birds, bees, butterflies, and countless species of hummingbirds, because of its unique scent.
