Wisteria sinensis

Vigorous anticlockwise twining deciduous climber. Very similar to the familiar Japanese species Wisteria floribunda, with slightly shorter but more prolific purple racemes (big pendulous things).

Plant in the ground in a sunny position in well drained soil. You get more flowers if you prune WIsteria twice a year. Do this in July/August and January/February.

Produced ‘by cuttings’.

N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.

As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
