Wisteria Plant emit an intoxicating scent
Wisteria Plant – Wisteria sinensis
The wisteria vine lends beauty and fragrance to any space it occupies. Though it may take several years for one of these plants to blossom, it is well worth the wait. In shades of blue, violet, and white, the flowers provide lush coverage and emit an intoxicating scent during their springtime bloom.
Because the wisteria can grow up to ten feet per year, it is a popular choice with gardeners who wish to cover large swathes of ground. It is essential to plant these lovely vines in areas with total sun exposure. They will still experience growth with partial sunlight, but they grow more slowly and may not flower at all. That is a plant that is difficult to kill but benefits from extensive pruning. Cutting back around half of the last year’s growth each winter will result in spectacular growth the following spring.
Wisteria can be planted in most types of soil
Because the wisteria is not a very picky plant and is hardy in zones five to nine, you may plant it in most soil types. If your soil is impoverished, use compost to provide the necessary nutrients. Phosphorus is also used to promote growth, so a cup or two of bone meal mixed into the soil right before the springtime bloom is an excellent idea for a happy, healthy plant!
The ease with which this vine spreads, combined with its beauty and fragrance, make it a fantastic choice for covering trellises or pergolas. When in bloom, the flowers cascade gently down to create a fairy tale atmosphere that will look elegant and charming in any garden. There is no actual endpoint for their growth, and if left unchecked, it can reach staggering proportions. Luckily, there is also no end to the wisteria’s lush and enchanting beauty.
