Standard Wisteria Sinensis Tree
This exceptional Chinese climbing plant has been grafted onto a single stem to form a standard Wisteria tree. The standard Wisteria is a perfect choice for growing in a pot on your patio or creating a focal point in a border. In spring it displays abundance of attractive fresh green leaves and during summer spectacular bluish-purple fragrant blooms cascade from the crown. Photos are for illustration purposes only.

How to take care of Sinensis Tree
Plant the standard Wisteria in a large planter, after watering, place the planter in a sheltered position in full sun. Feed the tree with a high potash fertiliser in the spring. Do not over feed as it will produce foliage at the expense of flowers.
The Wisteria should be pruned to maintain a height no greater than 1.2m and the head should be kept trimmed into an attractive shape. If left unchecked it will revert to it’s natural shape. Leaves may have dropped off during transport, do not worry new leaves will grow back.
During harsh winters you may need to bring pot grown trees indoors to an unheated room until it warms up. Please note that parts of this plant are toxic if eaten, especially the seeds. So keep away from young children.
