EXTRACT FROM

Wisteria are climbers for all seasons.
In spring or early summer, their bare stems are festooned with masses of pendant-like flower spikes, called racemes, in shades of lavender, bluish-purple, mauve and white.
As the flowers fade, new greeny-bronze leaves emerge, which turn a soft fresh green colour as they mature. In autumn, before the leaves fall, they turn a wonderful golden yellow especially in colder regions.
The velvet seed pods are another attractive feature.
They’re very versatile. Allow them to drape themselves over a fence or guide them upwards to cover a garden arbour or arch.
You can also train them as a standard tree or as an espalier on a stone or brick wall.
As they’re deciduous and lose their leaves, they let the winter sun shine onto patios, terraces and into the house.
They’re long lived and many reach a great age.
