Wisteria is an ever popular perennial vine, treasured for its clusters of small, colourful flowers that droop pleasantly from the vine itself. These flowers also have an unmistakeable and gentle fragrance, that’ll tantalize your sense of smell. The flowers are accented by dense, light green foliage, with teardrop shaped leaves. The stems themselves are soft and grow in a twining fashion.
Like other vines, Wisteria requires sturdy support as it grows to keep the plant upright, such as a fence, wall, or trellis. Placed upon one of these, it will undoubtedly add a classy touch to your garden. Wisteria dislikes the cold, so it fairs best in a bright and sunny area. It will tolerate many soil conditions, and is fairly drought-resistant, meaning it will require little watering. It grows quickly, so pruning will be required to prevent it from overtaking other plants.
