Wisteria, known by the common name of Wisteria, is a climbing plant belonging to the Fabaceae family and native to China and Japan. It has light green leaves and grows, wrapping around any support, literally colonizing railings and pergolas. It is characterized by abundant and showy lilac/purple pendant cluster flowering (up to 20cm long) which blooms along the entire length of the branches and releases a pleasant scent.

Wisteria prefers full sun exposure, but also tolerates partial or completely shaded positions. In these cases, however, flowering will be slowed down and will occur less generously than the development of a plant subjected to the direct action of the sun’s rays.


Very resistant to cold
