The Longwood Purple American Wisteria is less vigorous and more compact than the Chinese (Wisteria sinensis) and Japanese wisteria (Wisteria floribunda). It still has a spectacular show of purple flowers on a backdrop of green foliage that lasts long into winter. Masses of panicles are packed with pea-like purple flowers. Enjoy the beauty of this hardy climber on your trellis or even in a very large patio container.
