Wisteria is easily recognisable by its long clusters of fragrant flowers which hang from twining branches in late spring with occasional summer flowers. These vigorous climbers can adorn your home and garden. Young plants can be reluctant to flower and need care and consideration to flourish.
Wisteria can grow to be between 10 and 30 feet tall and begin blooming in the spring through to the summer.
There are different types of wisteria plants, many of which are beautiful, climbing plants.
A mature wisteria can completely transform a property, with the scented flowers appearing during May and June.
Along with beautiful flowers in the spring and summer, the plant can offer stunning autumnal colours and attractive pea-like seed pods.

When is the best time to plant wisteria?
The most appropriate time to plant wisteria is in the spring or autumn.
Before you plant it, you should try to improve the soil by digging in well-rotted organic matter such as garden compost or well-rotted manure.
Plant wisteria likes to run against a wall or galvanised wires.
Wisterias can be grown in containers, but often will not be as successful as those planted into the ground.
If you want to use a container, you should find the largest container you can find.
In addition, you should use a good tree and shrub compost – making sure to water it well and feed it in the spring period.
In the springtime, you should feed your plant high potash feed to encourage flowers.
