(Japanese wisteria, Black Dragon wisteria)
Family Papilionaceae
Originating from Japan

A vigorous deciduous climber with clockwise twining stems and large leaves consisting of glossy dark green leaflets. ‘Yae-kokuryu’ has the darkest violet/blue double flowers of any Wisteria. These hang in long, pendant racemes up to 50cm in length. Floribundas, with their extra long blooms are better suited to growing on an arbour or pergola, as opposed to against a wall, so that the flowers will hang freely from overhead. Sometimes the flowers are followed by large velvety, runner bean-like seed pods.
Wisteria can be grown as a standard tree with a spreading, weeping crown of foliage and flowers.
Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in sun or partial shade.
