This elegant white Japanese wisteria produces extravagant clusters up to 60cm (24in) long of fragrant pea-like white flowers in June and light green leaflets turning yellow in autumn. Less vigorous than many other varieties it's ideal for training against a sunny house wall. To enhance flowering prune the twining stems twice a year.

  • Garden care: In the first growing season tie in lateral shoots and cut back sub-lateral shoots to two or three buds. During the first winter cut back laterals by one third and sub-laterals by two or three buds.
