While Wisteria prefer moist, well-drained, fertile soil, they are quite adaptable and even drought tolerant once established. Water deeply with a hose about 2 times weekly for the first 2 to 3 months. Adding about 2 inches of mulch will help protect the roots, control weeds, and maintain moisture in the ground. Fertilize in spring with a slow release fertilizer.
Wisteria bloom only on new growth. So pruning is helpful for getting the most out of your blooms. Prune at least 1/2 of the prior years growth in late winter for best results. To maintain a rounded canopy pruning is required.
