Wisteria Sinensis 'Amethyst' (Chinese Wisteria)

Wisteria Sinensis 'Amethyst' (Chinese Wisteria)

Scented violet-blue flowers

Magnificent clusters of well-scented, red-flushed, violet-blue flowers appear on this vigorous twining climber from late spring to early summer. The foliage emerges soon after the flowers, and often has an initial bronze flush, which fades as the leaves mature. If possible place it near a seating area or walkway, so you can fully appreciate the fragrant blooms, and provide a sturdy support for it to climb over.
