How to grow wisteria

This gorgeous climber produces cascades of fragrant mauve or white flowers in late spring. It’s a vigorous plant that needs regular pruning and training to keep it in check and flowering well, but is well worth the effort. It looks amazing in full bloom clothing the front of a house, draping over a pergola or scrambling along a sunny wall.
