Wisteria at Rolling Greens
There’s no mistaking the sweet fragrance of wisteria as it perfumes our garden in the Spring. Its beautiful large, drooping clusters of vibrant violet-blue blooms bring life to any space, and we couldn't be more excited to have it in-stores!
How to grow + care Wisteria
Pick the perfect spot
- Open, well-drained, deep areas are ideal.
- Make sure it receives plenty of sunlight.
- Wisteria requires little watering since this vine is drought tolerant.
- Plant in the Spring or Fall.
- Dig a hole as deep as the root ball and two to three times as wide. Space plants ten to fifteen feet apart.
- Apply a layer of compost under the plant each spring, followed by a 2-inch layer of mulch to retain moisture and control weeds.
- To control growth and encourage flowering, prune wisteria after flowering in early summer by cutting side shoots that arise from main stems back to 6 inches.
- In fall, shorten these same laterals back to 2 to 4 buds. Remove shoots arising from the base of the plant as soon as they appear.
- Pruning wisteria is key!
