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.

Ongoing Care 

  • 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!
