Product Overview

Wisteria, widely popular, is something between a shrub and a vine, blooming vigorously in spring with showy, cascading flower clusters that provide growing color. Wisteria provides the drapery, vining slipcover look to camouflage a view or provide shade over a porch or pergola. It can live a long, healthy life with no pruning at all (depending on the look you seek), happily twining, climbing, and sprawling over everything and anything in its path. A sturdy support is recommended. It is drought tolerant, and easy to grow by anyone, green thumb or not. Wisteria gives the artful gardener a paintbrush for which to cover the landscape canvas. It is vigorous and rewarding, growing up to 10 ft. or more annually.
  • Sweet fragrance feast for the senses
  • Astonishing vigor producing hundreds of violet-blue blooms
  • Lasts and grows for ever
  • Plant 10 in. - 15 ft. apart, crown 1 ft. below soil level
  • Vigorous and rewarding, growing up to 10 ft. or more annually

Hello, The fact that you see growth means that they are love aswell. The root will first develop its root system, before showing much growth on top. Once roots have established you will be glad to see how fast this vine will grow.

It does have a trunk. Please see the attached photos of the recently planted Wisteria from Purple root stock.

I just looked out the back door and there are blooms! They are not yet fully grown nor open but they are there and they are going to be beautiful. I am unsure why they took so long [third year including planting year] but they are there now. Thank you so much for a beautiful climbing tree/bush.

How long once planted does this root take to begin producing leaves???

I bought 2, one plant was 6 weeks, the other took 9 weeks. Hang on in there!

can i plant it in the Rocky Mountains 10 thousand feet high, snows 6 months or so of the year.

Asked by Navaya October 11, 2018

Answer

Wisteria is a very hardy plant to hardy zone 5. Depending on where you are located in the Rocky Mountains, you may be in zone 4, but the plant should survive if you are closer to zone 5. If you are in zone 4, the plant may survive but may not perform as well as in the warmer zones.

Hi, no. Our wisteria is grown in Tennessee.

How long before it may blossom?

Asked by Nancy June 5, 2018

Answers

From the planting of the twig [not much more than that], it took two more springs before I got blossoms. I guess the easiest way to say it is three years [to include the first year I planted]. It is definitely worth the wait.

Wisteria arrived quickly and well packaged, with plenty of soil on the roots, larger specimen than expected, one a bit bigger in diameter and taller than the other. I left plants soaking in a bucket for a day then planted as instructed. Within the week I could see buds tipping out with green and the next week there were small branches shooting out. It’s been about a month since planting and they’re thick with branches and leaves, ready for the trellis we haven’t built yet - may take over the woods before that happens. (Pictures show the wisteria - with red ribbon markers - among other undergrowth, so not particularly clear but the best I could do for a quick snap with a phone camera.) I definitely would order these again.

I purchased 5 of these and the order arrived sooner than expected. I was able to get them planted within a day or two of their arrival and at the time of my writing this all 5 have begun growing and are leafing out nicely. I believe it will be awhile before I see any flowers, but to this point I am very pleased. Respectfully, Mr. Black

(1/2) growing
Bought two stock roots. Obly one seems to be growing at all, and exceptionally fast as well. They both started with very little to no buds and now the one on the left has many while the one on the right has nothing.

Planted it the next day. So far, it's not doing a thing and it's been weeks. I don't think it will live.

I followed all instructions provided with the plant, but there has been no change in its appearance whatsoever - no growth of any sort. A little disappointing. Very tempted to try some fertilizer, despite instructions to not use any during the first year.
