Wisteria floribunda is less vigorous than the Chinese wisteria, and is therefore less likely to cause problems when grown on buildings. The flowers open against a background of young foliage, with pendant clusters of pea-like, lilac-purple blooms.

Wisteria floribunda 'Multijuga' has longer-than-average clusters of fragrant flowers in a soft shade of lilac with darker markings.

Grow Wisteria floribunda 'Multijuga' in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Like most wisterias, it's slow to become established and may take several years to start flowering. Alternatively, buy a grafted plant which will flower sooner than those grown on their own roots.
