Care Guide

Good 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.

Water Regularly When Planted

When you first plant your Wisteria you will want to 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.

Full Sun to Partial Shade

You will want to plant somewhere the plant will receive at least 4-6 hours of sunlight everyday during summer and spring. This variety can handled some partial shade where it receives its light as dappled shade.

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.

Feed Every Spring

Every Spring feed with a well-balanced fertiliser such as Growmore or Fish Meal. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png?v=1613300718
