This week's Wayside
Gardens Plant of the Week is Wisteria 'Amethyst Falls'!
'Amethyst Falls' is a noninvasive, native cultivar that offers many benefits over other Wisteria. This award-winning plant is disease resistant, drought tolerant, deer resistant, and it attracts butterflies and other pollinators into your garden!
This Wisteria is sure to put on a beautiful show from spring to fall with some of the most beautifully fragant blooms of any Wisteria on the market. Being a native cultivar also has the benefit of being a more subtle addition to your landscape. Where other Wisteria tend to spill over into the rest of your garden, 'Amethyst Falls' likes to keep to itself.
It is also very easy to care for:
- Plant in full sun to part shade.
- Plant in moist, well-drained soil.
- Prune in the late winter before the plant starts to bud.
