Product Description

Wisteria floribunda 'Alba', the white-flowered Japanese Wisteria, is a magnificent, award-winning climber, smothered with drooping bouquets of fragrant white flowers, tinged lilac, through the summer.

Also known as ‘Shiro-naga’ this wisteria is a spectacular sight and a classic cottage garden favourite, best noted for its racemes of pea-like flowers which cascade gently down. Wisteria’s season of interest continues into autumn when the attractive, lobed foliage turns to a buttery yellow.

This elegant climber is thoroughly deserving of its RHS Award of Garden merit, and you can be sure that it will perform well in your garden – plus as its grafted, you're guaranteed that your plant will flower.

Despite much publicity that wisteria are difficult divas requiring a magical system of pruning, they're actually really easy to grow and will reward you with many years of pleasure in your garden. Ideal for covering a wall or pergola, wisteria can also be grown up and through an existing tree for a stunning torrent of flowers in your garden.

Supplied as a grafted 60-70cm plant in a 2L pot, ready to plant out.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Avoid high-nitrogen fertilizer. Like other members of the pea family, wisteria fixes nitrogen in the soil, so too much nitrogen causes excessive leaf growth and poor flowering.

Care Guide

  • Although capable of growing up to 8m (26ft), Wisterias are easily restricted by pruning and can even be trained as a small standard tree.
  • As wisterias are long lived, site is important, so pick somewhere that your plant will be happy. Plants like moist but well-drained, humus-rich soil in sun or light shade. As blossom can be damaged by late frosts, it is advisable to plant in a sheltered spot.
  • If growing on a wall, tie in to horizontal wire supports, then once a permanent framework has been established ongoing pruning is simple - just prune back extension growths from the main branches to 4-6 leaves in late July or early August and then back to 3-4 buds in midwinter.
  • Provide the twining stems with an appropriate and sturdy support, such as strong trellis or wires attached to walls and pergolas.
