A wisteria tree is a large tree that has purple, blue and white flowers. The flowering part of the tree hangs down, which provides drapery and plenty of shade. During full bloom, the flowers grow in clusters and are known for their rich fragrance.
Wisteria plants are beautiful and are an excellent option for any outdoor area or garden. They grow slowly, so do not be surprised if flowers do not begin to bloom for 6 or more years. The height of the vine often reaches 10 feet just a year after planting the tree, though at this point, flowers have not yet bloomed. Wisteria plants grow best with full sun. They also grow in partial shade, but the flowers do not bloom without plenty of sunlight.
