Can the wisteria tree be grown in a pot for a few years, then replanted in the ground?
Jennifer C on Mar 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sure! This is a good idea if you plan on moving and want to take your wisteria with you, or if you plan on preparing the ideal planting site for your wisteria before you put it in its permanent home in the ground.
All of the leaves/branches growing on my wisteria tree are growing straight down at an angle and if I were to straighten them out they would break, is it normal for them to grow that way? Should I stake them? I bought it from you last year so it's still really small. Also what do I do with the long skinny "branch" that's growing straight up in the air. It's growing off the main trunk.
Amy H on May 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Well quite a few skinny branches grew upwards and waved around, so I wove them into each other. I also wove the trunk up a nice strong plank. Now I wish I'd got a sort of Elven thick trunk with a lot of character for it to climb around. We'll see how it does as a tree. It can't reach anything to old onto. Hope that helps.
I bought a bare root wisteria last year and it had 3 main branches, a deer bit off 2 of them so all I have not is the one main branch/trunk, will new branches still grow?
Amy H on May 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'd say almost definitely. Wisteria grow rapidly and can withstand a lot. My dog actually buy a hole in the main truck and it is still growing. However, mine is going on two years now and has yet to bloom. Plenty of new branches and green but no blooming yet.
I have read that you need a mature wisteria or you may not see blooms in your life time. Also only plant the Eastern American wisteria species because Japanese and Chinese varieties are invasive. So what species do you have and how old are the plants you sell ?
Nanette L on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This plant is a year old on average when you receive it and it can take a handful of years to mature/bloom. It needs some time to mature, but not a lifetime. The Tree Wisteria is a Chinese species (Wisteria sinensis). It can be invasive in some states, specifically warmer regions; however, it is not the only species of wisteria we carry. Find more here:
