Wisteria sinensis 'Prolific' is a popular and stunning climbing shrub that is renowned for its abundant, fragrant, and long-lasting blooms. This deciduous plant belongs to the Fabaceae family and is native to China, but it is widely cultivated around the world for its beauty and versatility.

The 'Prolific' variety of Wisteria sinensis is named for its exceptionally abundant blooms, which appear in late spring or early summer in drooping clusters that can reach up to 30cm in length. Each individual flower is about 2cm long and features a delicate and enchanting fragrance that can fill the air. The flowers can range in color from soft lilac to deep violet, depending on the cultivar.

The leaves of the Wisteria sinensis 'Prolific' are light green and oval-shaped, with a pointed tip and a slightly hairy surface. The plant is a vigorous climber that can reach up to 9 meters in height and spread up to 5 meters in width. It is best trained to grow on trellises, walls, or other supports to showcase its beautiful blooms.

Wisteria sinensis 'Prolific' prefers full sun or partial shade and well-drained, fertile soil. It requires regular pruning to control its growth and encourage blooming. The plant is relatively low maintenance and can tolerate moderate drought conditions once established.

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).
