Wisteria, Japanese (Wisteria floribunda), packet of 5 seeds
Family: Legume (Fabaceae)
Hardy to Zones 5 to 9
Deciduous woody climber native to East Asia and Japan. Valued for its incredibly beautiful and aromatic flowers that droop down like bunches of Elysian grapes, the vine gives a classic appearance and romantic fragrance to trellises, pergolas, throughways and the summer porch. Traditional usage (TCM): antitumor. The vines themselves are useful in rope making and are used in bridge construction in Asia. Plant prefers a warm, sunny exposure and poor soil. Excellent in large pots and half-barrels—root constriction encourages flowering. Excellent choice for large pots and half barrels. Do not eat seeds–they are toxic. Nick seed, soak overnight and sow warm. Easy and volcanic germinator.
5 seeds/pkt, open pollinated
