Let’s be honest–something is so magical about Wisterias. The flowers can draw you in with their beauty and the vine grows in beautiful patterns.

This Summer Cascade™ Wisteria (Wisteria Macrostachya 'Betty Matthews') is a vine, but can be trained as a single stem Wisteria tree.

Planting and Application:

This unique Wisteria is a hardy version with dark lavender blue flowers that bloom in June.

  • The lavender flowers bloom dark and fade as they open creating a mystic ombre look. They grow in bunches and when you see them all hanging, it looks like a magical forest.
  • The foliage is a lovely bright green that looks amazing against the purple and blue tones.
  • People use this twining vine to cover porches, pergolas, and trellises. Talk about a dream fairy garden!
  • This vine or trained blue wisteria tree can grow from 15-20 feet in length and spreads 6-10 feet wide.
  • People love to use these flowers in arrangements because of their good looks and sweet fragrance.

#ProPlantTips for Care: 

Taking care of and planting Summer Cascade Wisterias isn’t too stressful! Your yard will be magical in no time.

  • Provide your wisteria with full sun as they grow fast and want nourishment! The lavender shades shine in the sunlight.
  • Like most trees, plant your wisteria in well-drained soil. This will ensure the soil is still moist, but won’t drown the roots and cause root rot!
  • Prune in the late winter for a happy and healthy Wisteria!
