Are there wisteria with other flower colors?

As the name suggests, the most common flower color is a bright blue. But there are also other varieties that bloom purple, pale pink or even white. However, they need a sunny spot for abundant flowering.

Can I support the bloom of my wisteria?

An uncircumcised wisteria does not bloom well because it puts its strength into growth. Regular pruning is therefore very important. It is best to cut the wisteria once in summer and once in winter. Also, make sure that the plant is well supplied with water and nutrients before and during flowering.

The essentials in brief:

  • blooms only after a few years
  • first flowering: April to June
  • possibly second bloom: in late summer, less abundant
  • blooms profusely in the sun, sparse in partial shade, hardly or not at all in shade


If you want your wisteria to bloom profusely, you should definitely treat it to a sunny spot.
