Wisteria sinensis ‘Caroline’

‘Wisteria sinensis Caroline’ also known as wisteria is a climbing plant with beautiful, very long, dark blue-purple coloured flower clusters that appear en masse in May-June. There may also be an after flowering in September. It is a fast-growing climber that can reach a maximum height of 10 metres. To keep the wisteria in the best possible shape, it is best to lead it along a pergola, fence or rack. Make sure there is a solid support, to which the branches are attached so that it can climb towards the sun. It is also important to prune the plant regularly during its growth or in early spring. Prune preferably twice a year. In early spring, when the plant is leafless, cut away all superfluous branches up to about three eyes. The eyes on the side branches will later produce flowers. In the summer, when the plant is growing vigorously, it is best to guide the long shoots in the direction you want. If you do not need them, it is best to remove them. If you keep your Wisteria compact and give it a sunny spot, it will bloom even more abundantly with wonderfully fragrant flower clusters in the spring. With good care, the wisteria can even live for hundreds of years. Older trunks take on a decorative, twisted shape. Be patient with this beautiful climbing plant, it can take a few years for the wisteria to flower properly.
