Plant Finder: about Wisteria chinensis

Common names

Wisteria, Chinese wisteria


Wisteria chinensis (Wisteria). This species is a twining climber with pinnate leaves divided into 7-13 elliptic-ovate leaflets. There are fragrant, pea-like, blue-white flowers borne in pendent racemes, in late spring and early summer, followed by bean-like velvety green seed pods.


They will prefer a sunny position with humus-rich, well-drained soil. You should prune after the flowering.

Interest and use
