Plant details

Wisteria floribunda is less vigorous than the Chinese wisteria, and less likely to cause problems when grown on buildings. The flowers open against a background of young foliage, with lilac-purple blooms which, in this variety, are the longest of any wisteria, almost a metre long on older plants, but even in relative youngsters they reach 60cm (2ft). Like most wisterias, this is slow to get established and may take several years to start flowering. Plants trained as standards begin blooming several years sooner, and provide an attractive way to fit a potentially large climber into a small garden.
