Wisteria

With masses of sweetly scented cascading flowers of blue lilac, pink or white, wisteria are truly one of the most remarkable sights in any garden and undoubtedly the most aristocratic member of the pea family. They are a very adaptable climber and can be trained against a wall, up into a tree, over arches and pergolas or simply up a post. They are hardy and robust and their needs are simple. Give them a well-drained, fertile soil and a sheltered, predominately sunny position and they will give you spectacular floral displays for years to come. All our plants are grafted and usually flower within three to four years of grafting, significantly quicker than plants grown from seed.
