This Japanese wisteria is something that not only collectors will be happy about, I believe. Have you ever seen wisteria with racemes longer than 1 meter? And that is on the short side: there is a plant whose flower raceme was worth writing in the Guinness Book of Records thanks to 180 cm in length! That is a size of a supermodel! :-)

Its name is Multijuga (formerly Macrobotrys) and usually makes 80-130 cm long racemes of light violet, pea-like flowers with a light yellow blotch in the throat. The scent is light and sweet. Flowers appear on a partially or completely leaved plant. Being late in flowering it escapes late frosts.

Thanks to the size of flower racemes as one method we suggest growing it in the following way: plant it at a beam, a post or against a fence and let it climb up at least 150 cm. Tie up its stem to the support not letting it wind around it. When it reaches this height remove all branches along the main stem and let it develop a crown or side branches only at the top. If grown against a fence lead the lateral branches along the top of the fence. As a result the flower buds will form at the top of the plant and newly produced racemes will never wallow on the ground and will be clearly visible for everyone who will want to admire its beauty.

Exotic-looking deciduous leaves are mid green, pinnate and large. It likes acid, reasonably fertile soil that is moist but well-drained. No fertilizing recommended. Abundant flowering can be achieved by regular pruning – cut back longest shoots several times a year. It needs full sun, very young plants can be damaged by harsh winters. Fully hardy to about -29°C (USDA zone 5).
