Wisteria Blossom

Wisteria blooms in spring. Its branches are abundantly covered with huge clusters of fragrant purple flowers. There are varieties with white, pink and purple petals.

Wisteria flowers bloom almost simultaneously in spring. Flowering lasts 2 to 4 weeks. It can be extended by removing faded brushes. It is better to take care of the support in advance from which the buds can hang beautifully.

The plant develops rather slowly. The peak of flowering occurs in the third or fourth year. In warm summer, the vine is able to bloom again.

For growing at home, it is better to choose Japanese wisteria. It is more compact than Chinese and blooms so profusely that no leaves are visible behind the brushes.

If the wisteria is not blooming, the growing conditions need to be analyzed. Incorrect feeding may be the culprit of the problem. Like any legume, wisteria does not particularly need nitrogen. If you overfeed it with manure, humus or urea, the vine will only grow branches to the detriment of the buds. If there is flowering, but very scarce, most likely there is not enough light.

Wisteria is a thermophilic plant

In the Crimea, the Caucasus and Transcarpathia, it blooms very abundantly and for a long time, in the Moscow Region and the Middle Belt it is weaker and needs winter shelter. They grow mainly wisteria abundantly flowering - Wisteria Floribunda and Chinese wisteria.

Optimal conditions for growing wisteria

Sunny, sheltered from the wind and light, moderately moist soil rich in nutrients.

Chlorosis (clarification of leaves) often develops on calcareous soils - it is better to plant varieties of Chinese wisteria here. In a dry spring, water the plants well so that the buds do not crumble.

Variety of flower shades

Wisteria flowers come in more than just violet-blue shades. There are also known varieties with white, pink and dark purple double flowers.

Buy only grafted varietal seedlings

When buying a plant, make sure that it is grafted, otherwise it will bloom only after many years and is much less luxuriant than varietal seedlings. The lush-flowering wisteria blooms in May-June and is considered the most frost-resistant. Some varieties can withstand frosts down to -20 ° C.

Separately, I will say about the desire of some to grow wisteria from seeds. Don't bother yourself! This activity is tedious and will not bring tangible results. As I said above, it is better to purchase a varietal seedling and deal with it.

The flowering date depends on the weather, it usually starts in early May, lasts until early June. Chinese wisteria forms flowers along with the development of leaves. Due to the fact that the leaves develop more slowly, they are still small, not visible when the flowering is already in full force. The Japanese species blooms a little later, when the leaves are almost fully developed. Under favorable conditions, both species can bloom again in August.

After blooming, the flowers turn into impressive pods. Fruits of Chinese wisteria up to 15 cm long, flattened, usually contain 2 seeds. The fruits ripen at the end of September or October, depending on the weather. To sow these seeds, they must be harvested in late fall. If they hang in winter, before spring, they may freeze. Only after an exceptionally mild winter in warm regions of the country can seeds overwinter.
