Good place to plant wisteria HELP!

H E L P please

I have here a new wisteria vine (blue MOON) have no idea on this kind of plant so need advice on where to plant and how to maintain it. Read a few forums and found out they have to be pruned quit aggressively. It is only six inches high at the moment and seven brackets. Very tiny . Need all the help I can get. Thanks hope to here from you all soon. :? :? :?

The most important thing to know about wisteria is that the seed pods are poisonous. Therefore, I would not recommend planting it if you have pets or small children. They are woody climbers, and can become quite large with age.

It may be tiny now, but it will be huge and heavy. Give it tons of support. They are often grown on massive cement arbors....

IMO wisteria makes a wonderful container plant. Here are a couple of mine. The oldest have been in pots at least ten years or longer.


Eclectic gardening style, drawing from 45 years of interest and experience. Mostly plant in raised beds and containers primarily using intensive gardening techniques.
