Wisteria are  the  jewels  of the botanic world; easy to look after, very long lived, vigorous, and simply magnificent when in flower. The usual Wisteria you find on front walls of English cottages is Wisteria sinensis, which must be 7-8yrs old before it will flower. Cultivars (ie; grafted, different colour Wisteria) can flower in their first year, but the older they are, the more likely they are to flower. Wisteria should be pruned twice a year to encourage  flowering; once lightly in September, and again in February / early March just before flowering. We have limited availability of most of the cultivars. All our cultivars are grafted forms.
