Japanese Wisteria - Wisteria
Latin name:

Description: A climber that always brings timeless elegance to the garden and a touch of the exotic. They are very vigorous plants once established and look beautiful when draped over pergolas walls or grown as standards. Wisterias need regular pruning for the best flower production. If space allows, this glorious plant can be left to ramble unimpeded, but they usually flower more freely and regularly if pruned to create stumpy spurs. It is on these shoots at the base of the previous year’s growth, that the plumper flower buds will be produced. Wisteria is usually found in different shades of purple to lilac and off white.

Hardiness: Hardy

Height: Tran to required height

Position: Full sun to light shade

Soil: Any soil

Water: Fairly drought resistant once established

Usage: For training over pergolas, walls and fences as well as free standing standards.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
