Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Wisteria is easy to grow and adapts to most conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

Heavy fertilization will promote vining growth for covering trellises and arbors when desired. Growth and flowering are best when the plant is grown under full sun conditions.
