Another ‘silky’ wisteria ‘Shiro-kapitan’ is an anticlockwise twining cultivar. Leaves can reach up to 35cm long with about 11 downy leaflets. Flowers hang in sprays 10-15cm long, are white with a central yellow stain and highly scented. This beautifully elegant variety is great for training up a pergola or trellis near to where the fragrance can be enjoyed. Bean-like seedpods appear later in the year and are velvety and up to 20cm long.
Like other wisteria, this variety will need support, pruning and training to retain its shape.
Grow in any moist well drained soil in full sun or partial shade.
Final height: up to 8-12m high.
