This is a special cultivar of Wisteria ‘Amethyst Falls’ which has a neater habit, flowers for longer and needs less pruning than it’s Asian cousins. Enjoy your wisteria on a patio or doorstep for the moment but after flowering, you can plant your wisteria out in the garden in a sheltered spot next to a wall or fence where it will have room to grow. Its roots should be cool and planted deep and a sunnier position will reward you with more blooms and a second flowering in late summer.
Whilst in a pot, your Wisteria will need to be watered regularly. Water thoroughly from the top every couple of days and let the excess drain away during the day. You may want to add an ordinary house plant feed to the water every week or so to help your plant continue flowering.
Wisteria are hardy plants but deciduous so expect your vine to drop it’s leaves in the autumn. They don’t need pruning like most Wisterias but will flower best with a light prune in the winter removing up to a third of the branches and trimming back into shape each year.
Wisteria will adapt to most soils but prefer a peaty (acid) soil if you have a choice.
