Also known as the Silky Wisteria due to its downy leaflets along the main leaf stem, Wisteria brachybotrys 'Okayama' is a vigorous twining climber that will soon cover large walls or fences with colour. Once the long, graceful leaves have emerged and clothed the vertical surface in rich green foliage, the beautiful flowers will begin to emerge. The hanging sprays of lilac blooms are up to 15cm (6") long and are also highly fragrant too, a wonderful sight to behold when seen en masse and a greatly admired plant by anyone who sees it during the summer months. Height: 9m (29'). Spread: 5m (16').

Feed and water regularly until fully established. In autumn or spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant. Prune wisteria in July and again in February. During the first two years, prune wisteria to create a framework of permanent stems. Tie in selected lateral shoots to sturdy supports and cut back unwanted growth. Once the desired framework has been created, continue pruning wisteria twice a year to contain the plants growth within its allotted space. Caution: harmful if eaten.
Grow wisteria plants in a sunny or semi shaded site in any moist, well drained soil. Wisteria flower buds can be damaged by hard spring frosts so choose a sheltered position. Prior to planting add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil. Provide the twining stems with an appropriate and sturdy support, such as strong trellis or wires attached to walls and pergolas.
