Additional Information About Amethyst Falls Wisteria

Wisteria Frutescens 'Amethyst Falls' is a fast and very fast growing tree and vining plant that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 1 through 9B. It matures to an average height of 15 feet to 20 feet and an average width of 4 feet to 6 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun, morning sun with afternoon shade or morning shade with afternoon sun and grows best when planted in loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained. It attracts visual attention and is resistant to deer, drought, insects, diseases and heat.

Amethyst Falls Wisteria can be useful in the landscape along woodland borders, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas, as a focal point or as a climber and also in cottage gardens.

More about Amethyst Falls Wisteria...

Have you always loved the incredible show of bloom and fragrance of a Wisteria vine in full bloom, but didn't want to spend the rest of your life trying to control its growth? Your worries are over! Introducing our own homegrown 'Amethyst Falls', a native Wisteria. Though Amethyst Falls will grow 20 to 30 feet in length, it is much less invasive and easier to manage than are its Asian cousins, which can run wild!

While the Asian types of wisteria may take 10 years or more to begin flowering, Amethyst Falls begins flowering at one year of age. Flowering occurs on new growth and is about two weeks later than that of the Asian types, so late-winter frosts seldom affect flowering. What's more, new shoots produced after the spring bloom will produce a second flush of blooms in the summer!

Considered by some to be a dwarf wisteria, Amethyst Falls has smaller leaves and flowers than the Asian types. Flowers are fragrant, lavender-blue and borne in 2- to 4-inch-long racemes that cascade from the foliage like a waterfall. 

Deer and drought tolerance are other outstanding attributes that earned Amethyst Falls Wisteria a Gold Medal award in 2006. 

Uses

It’s a perfect choice for pergolas, trellises or fences. It can also be trained to grow as a small, free-standing tree.

Culture & Care

Because this vine is a native, it is widely adaptable to various soil types and thrives in a wide range of pH (4.5-7). We recommend a well-drained soil. Is happy in full sun or part shade however flowering will be diminished in heavy shade.

Prune Amethyst Falls Wisteria in late winter, if necessary, to shape the plant and remove undesirable growth. Then trim lightly again after the first flush of bloom to encourage branching and more repeat blooms. A late-winter application of a complete fertilizer, such as 16-4-8, should be sufficient for the year. Grows in USDA Zones 5-9.

Wife and i just received our Wisteria. Very nice plant that is already in bloom. We are looking forward to seeing it grow! Was skeptical of ordering plants online but we are very happy with the fast shipping time and packing, our Wisteria looked great when it arrived and we plan on ordering many more plants in the future!

Planted the Amethyst Falls Wisteria January but TN had a blast of cold weather and we were sure the plants were gone. Now in spring they have sprouted beautifully! It will be wonderful to watch them grow in our yard!
