If you have a harsh looking house or garden wall and are looking for a plant that not only softens the look of it, but also puts on a fine spring/early summer display, then the Lilac coloured, scented flowers of Wisteria sinensis will achieve this admirably. As a deciduous plant, it loses its leaves in the autumn, but the twisted, sinuous stems create an intriguing piece of 'live artwork' on the wall.

The base of a wall or fence is dry and therefore a notoriously difficult growing environment - Wisteria if given the required care to establish, will provide a fantastic display with its racemes of lilac, scented flowers, followed by large bean-like seed pods.

Eventual height 2m and spread indefinite in 2years, is determined by the eventual size you require. Will need regular pruning to keep away from windows and guttering.
