How to Grow Blue Moon Wisteria
do not like to be moved once that have settled into a garden spot,
therefore plan for the future when planting a Wisteria vine in your
garden. Here a few tips to successfully growing Blue Moon Wisteria in your garden:
- Always purchase Wisteria plants that have been grown from cuttings or grafted rather than seed grown plants. Wisteria vines grown from seed typically will remain in a juvenile stage for 10 to 15 years or longer during which time they will not bloom. Wisteria plants that are grafted, and plants grown from cuttings or layered from a flowering plant will usually begin flowering within 1-2 years. Stargazer Perennials only offers Wisteria that are grown from grafted or layer cuttings.
- Select a full sun location that will allow the Wisteria once planted ample room to the roots 'run'. For maximum flowering, Wisteria vines require sufficient room to establish a large root mass to feed and nourish the plant.
- Dig a planting hole several times larger than the container of the plant.
- Place the vine in the planting hole and back fill with topsoil. Work in a well-balanced slow release organic fertilizer around the base of the plant. Water thoroughly.
- Provide regular irrigation throughout the season. Once established, Wisteria are drought tolerant, requiring water during the hotter summer months.
