Wisteria brachybotrys 'Ikoyama fuji' is a beautiful and popular deciduous climbing shrub that is native to Japan. It is commonly known as the Silky Wisteria or the Shiro Noda Wisteria, and it is valued for its fragrant and stunningly beautiful pendulous flowers that bloom in the spring and summer.

This climbing shrub has a vigorous growth habit and can climb up to 9-12 meters in height, making it perfect for covering walls, trellises, and pergolas. The leaves are long, narrow, and shiny green, and they turn yellow in the fall. The flowers are borne in large, dense clusters that can measure up to 45 cm in length, and they come in a beautiful shade of lilac purple with a white center.

Wisteria brachybotrys 'Ikoyama fuji' prefers a sunny to partially shaded location with well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. It is relatively easy to care for, and regular pruning is necessary to keep the plant in shape and promote flowering. Pruning should be done in late winter or early spring before the buds start to grow.

This climber shrub is a popular choice for gardeners who want to add a touch of elegance and beauty to their outdoor space. It is also commonly used in Japanese-style gardens and has a long history in Japanese culture, where it is revered for its beauty and symbolism.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
