Wisteria ‘Blue Moon‘
Wisteria macrostachya, sometimes commonly called Kentucky wisteria, is a deciduous vine that is a less aggressive (invasive) grower with longer inflorescences than some of the other wisterias, and it is well noted for its excellent winter hardiness and flower production in colder climates. This vine needs space and a sturdy support structure on which to grow. It can be slow to establish.
‘Blue Moon’ has beautiful lavender-blue and sweetly fragrant flowers that bloom in June and produce a wonderful floral display. ‘Blue Moon’ may bloom up to three times in a growing season once established, and spent flowers eventually give way to pendant, velvety, bean-like seed pods (4-5” long) which ripen in autumn and may persist into winter. Moreover, the stems of this vine will become twisted and trunk-like overtime, meaning this plant will dazzle you in new ways throughout the year and for years to come!
