- Detailed Specification
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 shorter white, scented racemes of Wisteria sinensis 'Alba' 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, to say the least and therefore a notoriously difficult growing environment - the Wisteria if given the required care to establish, will provide a fantastic display with its racemes of white, scented flowers, followed by large bean-like seed pods.
Eventual height 12m and indefinite spread up to 8m in 10-20years is determined by the eventual size you require. Will need regular pruning to keep away from windows and guttering.
