Blue Chinese Wisteria Tree
The Only Tree Form of This Unique Blue Wisteria
Sometimes the big words get over used: AMAZING, SUPERIOR, GORGEOUS, ONE-OF-A-KIND, ORIGINAL, BEST-SELLER. You know what we mean.
The ORIGINAL Blue Chinese Wisteria Tree is Nature Hill's best-selling plant. These are amazing tree forms of the popular wisteria vines that grow almost anywhere in the country. In spring and early summer they explode in long streams of sweet-smelling flowers that can range from sky blue to rich lavender. By autumn the flowers have transformed into 6 inch long velvet seed pods that add truly unique texture to your fall and winter landscape.
These small trees are fast growing (up to 15 feet if you let them!), disease resistant, highly drought tolerant and thrive in sun or light shade. Ours usually bloom the first year they're planted, but by year three there is no stopping them. Put them in large pots or in beds by your entryway, but make sure you put them where they will be seen! They are truly showstoppers. Be ready for the questions and the praise.
If you want to be confident that you are getting healthy, true-to-its-lineage, solid rootstock when you buy online, then you should only buy from us. Order yours with confidence today!

Blue Chinese Wisteria Tree Pruning
Bi-yearly pruning is the best method of producing nice short flowering stems that will produce nice amounts of bloom within the crown of your tree form Blue Chinese Wisteria. In summer time (July or August) you will have noticed that many large shoots have developed shooting out in all directions. Prune back these shoots back to the point where you are leaving about 5 leaves on that stem on the new growth it produced just this year.
Now in late winter or very early spring before any new growth begins, go back to that same shoot that you left the 5 leaves on the plant last summer and shorten it up now leaving 2 or 3 buds from which it will grow this coming spring.
