Have you ever thought about having a wisteria in your garden?



Shape and location

Wisteria is usually installed against a wall, a post or even as an “umbrella” with a pergola.
However, a wisteria can just as easily grow unsupported and give a shrubby effect.

To achieve this, it needs to be maintained so that the foot strengthens and the rest of the wisteria grows into this shape.
A tutor becomes indispensable during the first years of development.

They also need to be trimmed to fit their flowering period.


Wisteria variety

The varieties available in Belgium are quite few, generally around 5, but there are big differences between them.
Whether it’s their color, size, cluster/flower sizes, blooming season, appearance, ….

Yet there are some thirty varieties of wisteria available today.
To do this, turn to specialist nurseries in England or France.

Before ordering varieties from France or further afield (e.g. Italy), be sure to check the plant’s hardiness.
At the risk of maintaining a high level of care or seeing it wither away in the Belgian climate.



A lovely example of two mauve and white wisteria, which had a stake when they were first planted and are now standing on their own after 10 years.
Their trunks are 30 cm in diameter, and the only thing you can do to keep them that way is to control the plant.

They alternate flowering from March to early June. Mauve starts the season, followed by white.

Purple and white wisteria
Glycine (Wisteria) mauve and white, which alternates flowering one after the other to give the effect of a flower bed.
