Plant details

Rosea' is a striking, beautiful pink wisteria, the other Japanese floribundas being blue or white. The tiny, richly scented pea-like flowers are held in dangling clusters, up to 45cm long, giving a sensational show for two weeks in early summer making them a better bet than the Chinese wisterias which can get zapped by late spring frosts. Either grow as a standard, or trained against strong, taut wall wires. Prune established plants in late summer by cutting back all young shoots, including the long whippy ones, to 15cm (6in) of the main branch, leaving five or six leaves. In mid-winter prune them again to 10cm (4in), leaving two or three buds.
