This is an ultra-compact variety of Wisteria from America that is perfectly suited to growing in UK gardens.
Unlike virtually all other varieties of Wisteria though, many of which can take up to five years to flower, Amethyst Falls will reliably flower in its first year when the flowers will pour like a river of lilac from this fantastic plant throughout May, filling the air with the perfume of spring flowers. Sometimes when conditions are just right and we have a particularly good run of fine weather, you'll find that Amethyst Falls will often produce a second flush of flowers in the summer giving you a bonus show of bloom.
In its early years it will remain compact and manageable and as such makes a brilliant patio plant perfect for growing in a pot. Eventually it will reach a height of 12-15ft and will spread to around 6ft if left un-pruned. However, it can be maintained at half this size and still yield masses of flowers every single spring from this year onwards!
Supplied as an established plant in a 15cm pot, ready for immediate planting.
