How long does this wisteria take to bloom?
Typically around 3 years, although well-supported plants grown in full sun may bloom as early as 2 years!
Place the Wisteria somewhere it can receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight in well-draining soil. To plant, dig a hole three times as wide as the root ball and just as deep. (If planting more than one, be sure to space the plants 10-15 feet apart). Gently hold the plant while making sure it's vertical in the hole and backfill the hole with your other hand.
This plant may require staking. After you plant your Wisteria, drive your stake between 6 to 12 inches down and roughly 1/2 inch away from the trunk. Secure the tree with planter's tape every 8 inches.
During your first year, an inch of rainfall per week is recommended (equaling to about 4 gallons of water weekly). Water your plant in the morning or evening on hot, summer days to allow the plant to soak up the water before it evaporates. A slow trickling from the hose works best so the soil can absorb water without any runoff. After it's established, rainfall will suffice.
Your Wisteria will require little fertilizing. If you have poor or sandy soil, use a small amount of fertilizer like formula 5-10-10 or 5-10-5. Feed your wisteria about 3/4 cup per square yard each year during the spring.
Wisteria needs to be pruned twice a year, typically once in late winter and again in mid-summer. Winter pruning is to prepare the flowering spurs for the upcoming season, while summer pruning keeps the long, whip-like shoots under control to encourage them to become flowering spurs.
