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.
my wisteria tree has vines growing out of it,is it suppose to,are do i need to cut them off are let them grow?
RoxAnne K on May 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We cut the vines off in most cases however; we have been known to tie them to and existing limb or branch. It doesn't hurt the tree in either situation.
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: Mine grow wildly all over and I trim them quite a bit. Most of the ones I see wherever I go are the same way. They are difficult to tame. However, Trimming them doesn't seem to hurt.
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.

Wisteria Tree
I received my wisteria trees last year got them planted kept them watered throughout the summer. They leafed out but never formed pods for blooms I figured they were just too small. They have grown three times their size when I planted them. No blooms yet but I'm looking for them to do so.

Wisteria tree
I absolutely love it. No flowers yet but it is growing beautifully and always lifts my spirits just to watch it. I planted it in front of my kitchen window so I can maximize my viewing pleasure and look forward to the day where I have the beautiful flowers embracing the front of the house.

Wisteria Tree
I bought it last year and it's doing really well. Lost the leaves by the end of the winter (middle west Fl) but now it's growing faster. Can't wait for the flowers even if I have read it will take a while maybe years. Hope not. I'm very happy with my Wisteria.

Wisteria tree
The tree was a good price...smaller than I expected. It has established well. I just can't wait for it to grow. I think it will be a couple of years. I just have to have patience .
