Texas Purple Japanese Wisteria
Wisteria floribunda 'Texas Purple'
|Description||Showy, large clusters of sweetly fragrant purple flowers in spring are followed by large, compound, dark green leaves on vigorous twining stems. Best when trained on an arbor, trellis or fence to allow a full view of the spectacular pendulous flower clusters. Blooms at a very early age. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Fast growing; twining stems quickly climb 20 to 25 ft., with support.|
|Landscape Use||Espalier, Privacy Screen|
|Design Ideas||Fill your late spring with the fragrant, pendulous flower clusters of this Wisteria. Train it on a sturdy arbor or let it cover a pergola or patio, where the flowers can hang through the structure like huge clusters of grapes.|
|Companion Plants||Rose (Rosa); Daylily (Hemerocallis); Phlox (Phlox); Shasta Daisy (Chrysanthemum); Salvia (Salvia)|
|Care||Provide enriched, humusy, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Provide sturdy support such as a trellis or arbor. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer in early spring. Prune annually to control size.|
