Wisteria

    


Wisteria ‘Amethyst Falls’  full sun  partial shade
American Wisteria

Gracefully cascading in opulent 2 to 4 in. compact racemes amid shiny bronze-tinged new growth, ‘Amethyst Falls’ earns its name. The fragrant, pealike, vivid lavender-hued flowers unfurl some two weeks earlier than their Asian relatives and if lightly pruned will produce a summer encore. A slew of twining stems and airy pinnate foliage composed of green oval-shaped leaflets can be trained up a pergola or a trellis and as a free-standing tree form.

An improved selection of our native American Wisteria, this noninvasive, award winning cultivar exhibits an easily controlled less aggressive habit, which withstands deer, most diseases and some drought, doesn’t fuss about soil fertility and relishes good drainage. Large Band.

Blooms late April – May & September.

Size: 20' 0"–25' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 5.

Wisteria frutescens ‘Aunt Maude’  full sun  partial shade

If you’re smitten with Wisteria but searching for one that’s not so unruly, you may be interested in this superior southeastern U.S. native. Splendid close-knit clusters of 30 to 50 delicately fragrant blue-violet flowers garnish the current season’s growth, unfurling throughout the summer. Amongst large ovate green deciduous leaflets, the lovely cascading blossoms are followed by long lustrous seedpods that lend late season interest. Easier to manage and more hardy than her Asian counterparts, ‘Aunt Maude’ cloaks walls, trellises and columns with her long lasting floral charm. (pp#20,006)

Customer Comment:

“I held my breath and opened the box (after a long delay in opening the delivered plants, due to catastrophic flooding), dug down through the damp paper shreds and found all the plants alive!!!! I'm so relieved. I had to write and thank you for the hardiness of the plants, and for packing them so carefully.... Thank you, Digging Dog. I'll be back.”
