Remarkable selection of our "Southern Wisteria" this quickly forms heavy bonsai-worthy sinuous trunks with ornate pinnate foliage foiling the beautiful pendant clusters of closely packed blue pea flowers on new growth (not on last season's wood like the rest). Excellent container or tub plant for the cool greenhouse; seems tol be hardy outdoors here as well. Nonetheless if you are growing this in a bonsai or ming pot, the roots should be protected from protracted freezing and thus you would need to stash your dormant Wisteria in a cool corner of your greenhouse or very deep coldframe: and that is why we list this in the tropical plant section.
|Cultural Code||HH CGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
