Growing Domino Wisteria

It prefers sun but will thrive in dappled shade, and is best planted where the fragrance can be appreciated.

It needs the solid support of a pergola, pillar or a wall with vines eyes and wires set at 12" distances. It can also be grown more formally as a half-standard in a tub with a frame. It can look spectacular grown into mature trees when it will need very little maintenance save keeping its vigour in check.

Did You Know? 

There is a 150-year-old specimen in Ashikaga Flower Park near Tokyo that rests on 600 metres of trellis. It has also been sold as Prematura, in reference to its precocious flowering: the Japanese name Issai means 'year old' or 'age one'. 

Planting and Care Instructions

How to grow Wisteria floribunda:

It will need a fertile, moist well-drained soil and a good root run. Plant in a hole substantially larger than the rootball and backfill with a multipurpose or suitable garden compost. Firm in well and water well. Mulch around the roots and feed with a general purpose fertiliser in spring and summer.

It will need the support of a pergola, pillar or vine eyes and wires when grown against a wall. The plant is vigorous with strong growth and so the support should be sufficiently sturdy. It is happy growing into a large tree if tied in while establishing.

Look out for:

Generally disease free although it can be prone, on occasions, to leaf spot and powdery mildew. Watch for yellowing leaves and honeydew (sticky coating on leaves). If these are seen mealybugs may have infested the plant. Treat with a proprietary control.

All parts of the plant are poisonous and will cause severe stomach problems if ingested. It needs pruning twice a year. Two months after flowering the long shoots should be cut back to 5 or 6 buds from the stem and then, in mid-winter, it should be cut back again to 2 or 3 buds from the stem.
