Wisteria Sinensis (Chinese Wisteria)

Wisteria Sinensis (Chinese Wisteria)

Sweetly scented purplish-lilac flowers

Pendant clusters of fragrant, pea-like, bluish-lilac flowers in May and June, often followed by velvety-green seed-pods. This vigorous Chinese wisteria looks fabulous trained over a sunny wall or strong pergola. Renowned for its superior fragrance and flower-colour, the twining stems need careful pruning. All the Wisterias we sell are grafted, so will start to flower at a younger age than those grown from cuttings.
