Chinese wisteria is no doubt the queen of flowering climbers. Clusters of very fragrant violet flowers are 25-35 cm long and appear on bare wood earlier than on other wisterias, usually in April. Rather exotic looking pinnate leaves are mid green and densely cover the plant and its support. It usually offers second blooming in early summer when in full leaf.

The support is necessary even for tree forms because the wood remains very flexible for many years. Wisteria flowers mainly on short spurs so cut back unwanted side branches to 2-3 buds to encourage formation of flowering spurs.

It needs moist, acidic soil. Young plants require a sheltered place, mature plants (with a stem) are fully hardy to min. -29°C (USDA zone 5).
