"""Growth Rate: Fast once established which takes the first growing season"" Ours hit the top of an 11' arbor the first year, but suffers from bad pruning (mine.) A second hit the top of an 8' trellis, and then some, in it's first year. It's much happier and is blooming nicely, in its 2nd year, as I write this"
These plants arrived in great condition and look very healthy. I have only had them about a month but they look great! Very excited to see them in bloom.
I ordered three plants a couple of years ago and this is the first year I have gotten prolific blooms. The plants are absolutely beautiful and low maintenance.

"i PURCHASED THIS WISTERIA IN SPRING 2009. AS I LIVE IN AN APARTMENT, I PLANTED IT IN A 5 GALLON CERAMIC POT AND PLACED IT ON MY PATIO. CAREFUL PRUNING OF THIS PLANT, RESULTED IN THE PLEASURE OF HAVING IT FLOWER THIS PAST SPRING 2010. IT IS A BEAUTY TO BEHOLD. YES, IT DOES HOLD UP BEING OUTSIDE IN OUR NY WINTERS. I WILL BE MOVING TO RICHMOND AND IT WILL BE GOING WITH US."
"I bought this plant from SpringhillNursery about 6 years ago. The plant has grown tall, but it never bloomed. I have been waiting year after year to see its flowers and so far has not happend. I called nursery and I was told it will take 3 years before the plant start blooming. a kind of disappointment , since I have not seen any results so far!!!"
Ours is 10 years old and just keeps getting more beautiful every year. A terrific plant.
