Kuchi-beni is a Japanese wisteria which has more trade names – Alborosea, Peaches and Cream, as well as Lipstick which is probably the most common in English speaking markets. The flowers are composed in long racemes. They are pea-like, pale mauve and white, with a yellow blotch in the centre, and open from lilac pink buds in May. They are followed by seed-pods with poisonous seeds in late summer. Pinnate leaves emerge shortly after the flowers and look rather exotic. They densely cover the plant and its support from the ground level. They are light green, deciduous, and turn yellow in autumn.

Wisteria vine needs a strong trellis or a fence to climb, while tree forms need a good support only until their trunk hardens enough to hold the crown (about 5-6 years from transplanting). Wisterias flower mainly on short spurs along the twigs and pruning will encourage setting of flower buds. So cut back long branches to 5-10 cm every spring and also during the season.

Wisteria needs moist, acid, medium fertile soil. Fertilizing is not recommended. Young plants require a sheltered place, mature plants (and those with a stem) are fully hardy to -29°C (USDA zone 5).
