The flowers of Chinese wisteria open in early summer, arising from bare stems as the foliage does not appear until the flowers are over. The species has lavender flowers, but named varieties are available in shades of violet or white. It can be grown traditionally on the wall of a large house, with wall nails used to hold the framework of main stems in place, or allowed to scramble through a big tree where it looks most spectacular as well as being maintenance free. Like most wisterias, this is slow to get established and may take several years to start flowering. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

i have a 20 yr old wisteria sinensis and once again it has filled with foliage without flowering,i`ve followed advice on pruning,feeding etc but to no avail! why won`t it bloom?please help
I learned (long ago)that some Wisteria's flower while others just don't. Perhaps you should buy another one and find out.
I have my mauve one in a pot for last 20 or more years, and it should flower better than being in the ground, do you feed it,
will adding potash to soil around help it to flower

I planted my new wisteria early March and it was in
flower in May.It sits outside our kitchen window with
some fence protection but its planted in the ground.
The scent is wonderful and I hope for a repeat
performance next year
