Wisteria frutescens ‘Longwood Purple’ is an American Wisteria with some distinctions from the various Asian cultivars. The flowers, which hang like bunches of purple grapes bloom from May, a little later, to accompany the summer garden. After its first initial, heavy bloom ‘Longwood Purple’ proceeds to flower in a more sporadic fashion throughout the remaining summer.

‘Longwood Purple’ is a perfect plant to train along a weathered wall or a colourless pagoda. The lilac flowers also looks splendid hanging from an archway making it a fantastic decorative piece of screening in the garden. The plant will prefer a sunny, sheltered position for the heaviest blooms.

Primrose instant climbing plants are provided fully covering the trellis for instant impact when added to your garden. Just drop them into place either in the ground or in a container and prepare to marvel at your living screening. Incorporate into your garden design to cleverly compartmentalise your outdoor space creating areas for dining, walkways or even hide an unsightly feature.

If planting in the ground:

Before planting your trellis, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the trellis base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Dig a hole 2X the width of the rootball and deep enough for the root collar to sit just above the top of the hole when in position. Make sure to position so that the trellis is aligned as you desire.

Once positioned, backfill with soil and firm every few shovels to ensure there are no air gaps. Once filled, check alignment of the trellis and then give a generous watering.

If planting in a container:

Fill container with soil mix to the desired level. Then follow the steps above. You will not need to dig a hole quite so wide as you are planting into fresh soil.

Caring and Maintenance

Water regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth. Optionally, mulch in spring.
