Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda)


Wisteria, which is also called with the scientific name of Wisteria, is part of the large Papilionaceae family: it is a climbing plant that comes from the Asian continent and, in particular, from countries such as Japan and China.

We are talking about a not particularly numerous genus, given that inside we find about a dozen typically climbing shrubs, which are also characterized by being rustic.

Among the main characteristics of Wisteria, we undoubtedly find the shape of the trunk, which twists in the lower part and then adapts to the structure that is placed near the top of the plant.

Among the other peculiarities of this plant, we find an interesting color of the flowers, which varies from blue to violet.

The flowers of the Wisteria develop inside inflorescences that can even reach a length of twenty-five centimeters; moreover, they are characterized by having a rather intense perfume.

Surely, the most suitable period to start cultivating this plant undoubtedly corresponds to the colder seasons, such as autumn and winter, until March, paying the utmost attention to ward off the danger deriving from frosts.


This climbing plant is characterized by loving all those typically sunny areas, even if it manages to adapt with good results to partial shade areas.

One of the main dangers for Wisteria derives from late frosts, which it just cannot bear, since it is above all the sprouts that suffer a lot and suffer the most serious damage.

As for the location, it is advisable to place the Wisteria near a wall or, in any case, near structures that face east.


The watering of Wisteria must remain constant, but never excessive: in particular, they must be concentrated during the period in which the plant takes root.

The flowering phase occurs during the summer season and occurs for about thirty days: the greatest production of flowers is found above all in younger plants.

In the event that the Wisteria plant does not reach flowering, the causes are to be found, in particular, in an excessive use of fertilizer, but also due to pruning that does not respect the correct rules, in addition to the fact of do not expose it in a bright place.


The best substrate for the cultivation of Wisteria is undoubtedly the one that has typically clayey characteristics, but despite this peculiarity, it is a climber that manages to develop very well in any type of substrate.

It is essential, however, that the soil in which Wisteria is grown meets two main requirements: we are referring to excellent drainage and a large amount of organic substance.

Likewise, it is important to mention the fact that the positioning of these climbing plants is also characterized by the vigor with which the trunk grows: it can often happen that it causes damage to all those structures that are in the vicinity of the plant.

Here is a brief explanation of why it is advisable to place Wisteria plants as far as possible from roof tiles and gutters.


The multiplication of this climber occurs through cuttings, although there is the possibility that it occurs through grafting.

If the first solution is chosen, the ideal period to extract the cuttings is between the final part of July and the beginning of September.

Rooting must take place inside a special container, which must be previously filled with a mixture of peat and sand and then stored at a temperature not lower than sixteen degrees centigrade.

To ensure a more reliable rooting, you can take advantage of the constant water nebulizations to be carried out on the leaves.

As for graft multiplication, however, it will have to take place in March and it is necessary to extract the slips from the plants, and then graft them on the Wisteria sinensis: the next step is to bury them and store them at a temperature between 16 and 18 degrees centigrade.

Wisteria can also be propagated by seed or offshoot, although it is important to underline that the two methods of multiplication previously reported (cutting and grafting) are the most consolidated and most frequent.

Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda): Pests and diseases

Although Wisteria is a plant that has a high level of resistance to any kind of danger, it can happen quite frequently that it is hit by parasites such as aphids and spider mites.

In some cases, moreover, even if it must be said how it happens much more rarely, it can be the object of attacks by thrips, which mainly hit the leaves, causing rather considerable damage.

Among the most important diseases that can affect the Wisteria plant, we also find chlorosis, the main consequence of which is represented by a notable whitening of the leaves.

Floribunda wisteria it is native to the Japanese forests. Introduced in 1820 to North America for the pleasure garden, it has become an invasive species in some American forests: it changes the natural structure of forests by smothering native trees and changing the brightness available for the herbaceous phase.

Japan wisteria, however, is a great climbing plant to tread on a pergola or fence. Horticulturists have not stopped creating new varieties of this species, bringing new colors or a smaller development of the branches, or lengthening the clusters of flowers. Very close to the point of view of its maintenance of Chinese wisteria, it differs however on some points.

Floribunda wisteria it can rise up to 10 in height, resting on a support: a tree, a pole, a facade. Its branches grow by wrapping this support in the clockwise direction, unlike the Chinese wisteria. The stems thicken and lignify with age, eventually able to form a crooked trunk of 25 cm in diameter.

The flowers appear in long clusters of 50 cm, in May-June, in the midst of leaves already outside. They are less fragrant than those of the Chinese species. The 'Longissima' variety has clusters longer than 1 m.

The length and tiered arrangement of the bunches bring great elegance to the plant. On the contrary, with Chinese glycine, the pea-shaped flowers bloom successively along the cluster starting from the base.

The leaves are composed of 13 to 19 oval leaflets, tapered at the end and wavy edges.

All plants from Flores Frescas arrive well packaged and healthy. Wysteria has not flowered yet but is climbing up and up!

Es muy pequeñita, para el precio.

El tamaño es porque en this era están podadas para un mejor crecimiento en spring Saludos

When you enter this planta no estava in stock. Me dieron the option to donate me. Decidí aguardar y la planta llegó when I había dicho que llegaría no demorando mucho. The razón por la cual le doy tres estrellas es porque la planta que recibí parece estar muy joven. Llegó sin hojas y es una vara muy delgada que si sobrevive goes to tomar mucho tiempo para llegar a madurez y a florecer. Pensé que por € 25 iría a recibir una planta más madura.

Hola Las wisterias en invierno son un palo seco y se podan cortas los primeros años para que se haga una buena planta, de ahí el tamaño Saludos

Llegaron rápido, bien protegidas y las plantas en muy buen estado. Estoy is happy to buy it. Repetiré.

Wisteria, the flower of friendship
