Care Guide

Excellent pest and disease resistance

Wisterias are generally not bothered by pests or disease. Aphids, Scale Insects, Powdery Mildews, and Honey Fungus can affect the plant but the problems are usually not serious.MORE

Water regularly when first planted

When you first plant your Wisteria water it regularly, especially during prolonged periods of hot and dry weather. After the first couple of years, however, the plant should establish itself well enough that it will only need to be watered very lightly, if at all.MORE

Full Sun to Partial Shade

Position where the plant will receive at least 4-6 hours of sunlight every day during summer and spring. This variety can handled some partial shade where it receives its light as dappled shade.MORE

Any fertile, well-drained soil

If your soil is particularly clay heavy and gets waterlogged often, make sure you mix in plenty of organic matter and perhaps even gravel or perlite to help improve drainage.MORE

Feed every spring

Every spring, feed with a well-balanced fertiliser such as Growmore or Fish Meal.MORE

Prune often

Pruning Wisteria is an important task that keeps the plant healthy, promotes flowering, and helps you train it up structures the way you want. In the first few years when you want the Wisteria to grow rapidly up a structure, prune it more lightly than when it becomes fully mature. Pruning Wisteria occurs in two phases. The first phase begins in late Summer around July/August where you cut back the new whippy growth, unless you are looking to train it to cover your structure in which case this is the time you tie it in. Follow the whippy growth back to the woody stems. Then, cut the whippy growth five buds from this woody stem. This will help you ensure that the plant does not get out of hand and you can control its growth. The second phase begins in late Winter around January/February. Find where you made the cuts in the summer and cut off down a further 2/3 buds. This will promote greater floral growth come early Summer.MORE
