  1. Wisteria is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae (Leguminosae), that includes ten species of woody climbing bines that are native to China, Korea, Japan, and the Eastern United States.Some species are popular ornamental plants. An aquatic flowering plant with the common name wisteria or 'water wisteria' is in fact Hygrophila difformis, in the family Acanthaceae
  2. A high-climbing vine, wisteria blooms vigorously in spring with large, drooping clusters of lilac or bluish-purple flowers. Here’s how to plant, grow, and care for wisteria in your garden!
  3. Learning how to propagate wisteria vines is easy; however, doing so by way of seed is not a good idea. If choosing to propagate from seed, soak them overnight and plant.The seeds should sprout within a few weeks but keep in mind that blooming may not occur for 10-15 years, if ever.
  4. Plant your wisteria in autumn or spring. Prior to planting, add plenty of well-rotted manure or garden compost to the soil to improve its fertility and drainage. It’s vital to take the time to create ideal soil conditions for your wisteria from the very beginning, because you’ll be living with the plant for very long time.
  5. Wisteria prefers a sunny position, but can be grown in slight shade. Plant in a well-drained, fertile soil. If buying a new wisteria, always choose one that has been grown from cuttings or by grafting. Seed raised wisterias flower less reliably, and also take longer to flower.
