At Landscape Assistance we love this woody vine native to Japan, China, and Korea. Wisteria grows beautifully in our Southern California climate and once a year it produces an unparalleled bloom in the Spring that makes the months it lies leafless and dormant totally worth it. Also available in white, we’re partial to the classic pastel purple pictured here at a client’s home in Escondido. When the vine starts to bud and leaf out, there’s no better indicator that Spring has Sprung and warmer weather is on the way.
We love to recommend this vine to clients who are planning to stay in their home for several years and have a structure to climb the vine in full sunlight. Wisteria can take up to 3-5 years to produce its first bloom, but with hearty, well-draining soil and attentive pruning, it’s possible to produce a bloom sooner. Wisteria is a steady grower and worth the time and patience it takes for this spectacular Springtime bloom. #whatsbloominSD
