Description

The Amethyst Falls wisteria vine is an eye-catching blooming vine with purple colored flowers that bloom in the spring and summer months. Native to North America Amethyst Falls Wisteria is a cultivar of Wisteria frutescens.

The woody stems of Wisteria vines often grow to reach lengths of 30 ft or more while producing a cascade of lavender to blue clusters of fragrantly sweet flowers. Compared to others you will find that the Amethyst Falls Wisteria is smaller in size to other Wisteria vines making it more suitable for smaller gardens or maybe even for use as a container plant.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

Amethyst Falls Wisteria Spacing

This vine needs 6 to 12 feet of room to climb and spread as it should. For a seamless effect on fences or larger structures, space the plants about 9 feet apart from center to center.
