Whenever we see wisterias, we are most attracted to this plant. This small (read safer, not agressive) plant has lavender-purple flowers 6-8 inches long that bloom early summer then sporadically through the rest of the summer.

Looking for a well-behaved wisteria? 'Amethyst Falls' flowers at a young age, has a slightly more compact growth habit and it's noninvasive. An abundance of fragrant flowers first appears in 4-6" long racemes in late spring and it will often rebloom in summer. Train on an arbor, a trellis or a fence and you'll be rewarded with cascades of bluish-purple flowers that attract butterflies to your garden. Prune in late winter to encourage a well-branched specimen.

Info

Gracefully cascading in opulent 2 to 4 in. compact racemes amid shiny bronze-tinged new growth, 'Amethyst Falls' earns its name. The fragrant, pealike, vivid lavender-hued flowers unfurl some two weeks earlier than their Asian relatives and if lightly pruned will produce a summer encore. A slew of twining stems and airy pinnate foliage composed of green oval-shaped leaflets can be trained up a pergola or a trellis and as a free-standing tree form. An improved selection of our native American Wisteria, this noninvasive, award winning cultivar exhibits an easily controlled less aggressive habit, which withstands deer, most diseases and some drought, doesn't fuss about soil fertility and relishes good drainage. Large Band.

Info

Not rampant-growing like Asian wisterias, this American native produces a great number of small purple blooms over a long period. The dusky green vines climb, but it blooms on current year shoots, so can be pruned to any desired size without worry that it may not bloom.

Said to be not quite as rampant as the Asian Wisterias. This is a selection of the American native wisteria and will produce purple blooms over a long period. They do climb and will also spread by underground runners, but they can be pruned to a convenient size since they bloom on current year shoots.

Amethyst Falls is a lavender blue selection of this US native vine. It is much more restrained than the Asian species. It blooms in late spring and repeats lightly throughout summer months. The best show can be achieved by trimming your vine to four buds from last year's new growth just before this year's growth begins.

Somewhat less aggressive, though still capable of toppling an arbor or trellis if left untended, is our native American wisteria (W. frutescens). While its floral display is a little less impressive than the Asian species', it's still a charming vine, displaying handsome foliage and dangling purple blue flowers with a sweet perfume. Light summer pruning to control growth & flush a 2nd bloom. Dormant pruning can be hard an unselective! Host plants for the Zarucco Duskywing Butterfly. The one vine that deer won't eat even if near starving.

This twining vine will grow at about 1/3 the rate of the Asian wisterias for better behavior in small spaces and containers. Intensely blue, 4-6" long racemes are borne in April and May and continuing to bloom on new growth throughout the summer. May be pruned heavily in winter as it blooms on new growth.
