Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda)


Japanese Wisteria

Wisteria floribunda

Plant Japanese Wisteria in your landscape and you can create a spectacular and colorful springtime scene teeming with butterflies and hummingbirds! Native to Japan, Wisteria floribunda blooms with stunning colors of white, blue or violet on elongated stamens that look like mini chandeliers, adding instant curb appeal to any landscape. This woody, deciduous vine is a rambunctious climber, so it’s excellent for trellises, wall coverings and climbing up the side of a building. We also love to plant them as one of the best natural patio covers you can find!

Cold and heat tolerant, Japanese Wisteria is ready to be used for a wide range of landscape applications from the desert to the coast. Since it’s a fast grower, you will not have to wait too long to experience the wonderful characteristics of this romanticized plant. This easy to care for plant loves to grow where there is plenty of full sun exposure and lots of room so you can enjoy the dramatic foliage. This is a long-lived plant and once established, it will have low to moderate watering needs. We recommend feeding it with our Moon Valley Nursery fertilizers to optimize performance.

We custom-grow Japanese Wisteria from our own private stock of premium quality specimens, so we can assure that the quality of these vines is the best you’ll find anywhere! Come visit our huge nursery and prepare to be wowed by our incredible selection of the best quality trees, vines and other plants!
