  1 Customer Reviews     Read Reviews
  • This brand new variety of Wisteria is an ultra-compact variety from America that is perfectly suited to growing in UK gardens.
  • Unlike virtually all other varieties of Wisteria though, many of which can take up to five years to flower, Amethyst Falls will reliably flower in its first year.
  • The flowers will pour like a river of lilac from this fantastic plant throughout May, filling the air with the perfume of spring flowers.
  • In its early years it will remain compact and manageable and as such makes a brilliant patio plant perfect for growing in a pot.
  • Eventually it will reach a height of 12-15ft and will spread to around 6ft if left un-pruned. However, it can be maintained at half this size and still yield masses of flowers every single spring from this year onwards!

Product Information

A cottage garden favourite, this new variety of Wisteria is an ultra-compact form from America that is perfectly suited to growing in UK gardens with its racemes of luxurious purple flowers.

Although slightly shorter than the normal varieties, the showy, rounded blooms of 'Longwood Purple' will cascade like a river of lilac throughout May and June, filling the air with sweet perfume.

No longer reserved for large country houses, in its early years it will remain compact and manageable and as such makes a brilliant patio plant - perfect for growing in a large pot to cover pergolas and patios with cascades of bloom.

After 10 years it will reach a height of 3-4m (12-15ft) and will spread to around 2m (6ft) if left un-pruned. It can however be maintained at half this size and still yield masses of flowers every single spring !

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 Information

  • Although capable of growing up to 8m (26ft), wisteria are easily restricted by pruning and can even be trained as a small standard tree.
  • As wisteria 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.
  • Provide the twining stems with an appropriate and sturdy support, such as strong trellis or wires attached to walls and pergolas.
  • 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.
