Wisteria brachybotrys 'Showa-beni' is wonderful, vigorous, deciduous climber that climbs by anti-clockwise twining. It has soft, silky, pinnate, fresh green leaves, and fragrant, lilac-pink flowers abundantly growing in hanging sprays and blooming in late spring to early summer. Flowers are followed by velvety, bean-like seed pods, ripening in late summer and persisting on branches throughout the winter. Attractive to bees and butterflies. Wisteria brachybotrys 'Showa-beni' grows best in moderately fertile, slightly acidic, medium moisture, well-drained soils, but can adapt to a wide range of soils. It likes full sun, but tolerates partial shade. Best flowering is achieved in full sun. It can withstand frost and drought. Needs regular pruning to maintain its shape and size and to encourage flowering. Wisteria brachybotrys 'Showa-beni' is an exotic-looking and fast-growing climber perfect for growing against a house wall, on pergolas, trellises, arbours, and fences. Great for cottage and urban gardens. It can also grow as a tree on a strong support.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

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).
