This Japanese wisteria which also goes by the name of ‘Yokohama Fuji’, is another anticlockwise twining cultivar. Leaves are up to 35cm long with about 11 downy leaflets and flowers hang in sprays 10-15cm long. The April – June floral display is highly impressive as scented flowers open from rich violet buds to pale lilac.
The bean-like seedpods are velvety and up to 20cm long. Grow in any moist well drained soil in full sun or partial shade.
Like other wisteria, this variety will need support, pruning and training to retain its shape.
Final height: up to 8-12m high.
