One of the most spectacular wisterias bearing extravagant long clusters of fragrant pea-like lilac-blue flowers in June. The trusses of this Japanese wisteria can exceed one metre in length - longer than any other variety. It makes an eye-catching feature grown over a robust pergola or trained against a protected sunny wall.

  • Garden care: After planting prune back the leading shoot to 90cm (36in) above the ground. 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
