Amethyst falls Wisteria vine Wisteria frutescent 'Amethyst falls' 'Amethyst falls,' like other Wisteria, is a strong grower, reaching 30' or more. It is, however, not invasive like its Asian cousins. This native variety is less vigorous & easier to manage, refraining from choking out trees over time, as some Wisteria want to do - a distinct advantage in the South, where Wisteria can run wild! all of these things make it an ecologically sensitive choice. 'Amethyst falls' flowers sooner than the Asian types (some of which can take 10 years or more), blooming its first season with fragrant, vividly purple flowers on 4- to 6" racemes that appear in spring & repeat all summer. Its bloom also arrive about two weeks later in the season than others, so late-winter frosts seldom affect flowering. The many attributes of 'Amethyst falls', which include its deer & drought tolerance & its disease-resistant foliage, earned it a Georgia gold medal in 2006 this gorgeous vine is a perfect choice for pergolas, trellises, fences, arbors, & containers, attracting butterflies to your garden all summer long. It can also be trained as a free-standing tree - tie it to a sturdy 5- or 6-foot stake & prune the top to encourage branching. Pruning should occur in late winter to shape & remove any undesirable growth. Another light trim after the first flush of flowers will improve branching & produce an encore bloom. Mature height: 20-30' mature width: 4-6' exposure: full sun to partial shade hardiness zones: 5-9

'Blue Moon' is a vigorous, quick-growing vine, reaching 25 feet long within just a few years. It needs no pruning, and should only be trimmed back if necessary after the final flowering. Let it ramble across pergolas, over arches, and up trellises and other ultra-sturdy supports, dangling its huge blooms along the way. A fully blooming 'Blue Moon' is a breathtaking sight! Give this vine as much sunlight as possible for best flowering. It flourishes in moist, well-drained soil enriched with compost and other organics. We cut these back every year to encourage branching and general maintenance. Blue Moon grows 3 to 6 feet a year after it is planted.

a life's design: Wisteria...

living in illinois, we only see a very occasional wisteria. i was once called to fly into charlotesville, va. to do a garden design.
as we drove to her home i was absolutely astounded at the wisteria everywhere. she must of known from my gasping that i was enamored by this plant as she shouted
'don't get any ideas, this is a weed here!'

It is pretty, but in this part of the country (NC) we have to work really hard to keep it under control. It is VERY invasive and will take over everything if you're don't stay on top of it. Once it's established it's very hard to get rid of, so I just have to keep trimming it 4 or 5 times a year. I would never plant it on purpose! But it might not be that bad where you are?

Hi there Megan,
There are different varietals when it comes to Wisteria. Most of the vines that you showed in your photos are the same type... and yup, they can be invasive...but so beautiful. Four years ago we planted an evergreen Wisteria over our front door arch. (didn't know there was such a thing) (we are in Dallas) It doesn't bloom when all of the other Wisteria bloom, but it blooms mid to late Summer and does so continuously. The blooms are a deeper purple and very fragrant.
I would look into what your options are before planting.
Have fun.
Marybeth
