This Wisteria tree can grow in full sun to part shade, but more sun will provide the most blooms. 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.
Your wisteria tree may require staking for the first year or so after planting. These are fast growing and the canopy can be heavy for the unestablished tree.
Wisteria plants don't tend to have problems with pests, disease, or deer.
