Wisteria frutescens ‘Longwood Purple’ is the ideal wisteria for smaller gardens, covering a sunny wall or fence and producing masses of gorgeous unscented purple flower clusters in late spring.

How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a pot, ready to plant out.

Can’t plant straight away?

Place the pot in a sheltered spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist.

Planting tips and hints:

Planting in the ground: Plant in fertile, well-drained soil, in a sunny, sheltered position against a wall, pergola or other support. Provide a strong support framework for the wisteria to twine around – mature wisterias are heavy. Before planting, dig in a soil improver such as well-rotted farmyard manure to improve the soil.

Planting in containers: Plant in a large container filled with a loam-based compost such as John Innes no 3.

Aftercare:

Water regularly in the first year after planting and during dry periods. Feed in spring with a slow-release high potash feed such as rose fertiliser.

Prune in summer, cutting back the current year’s growth of long whippy shoots to five or six leaves from the main branches. Prune again in January or February, cutting these shoots back again to 2-3 buds from the main branches.
