Wisteria Brachybotrys. Japanese Wisteria. 5ft Espalier Trees. 

The Wisteria Brachybotrys commonly known as Japanese Wisteria is a spectacular and graceful vine which is fast growing and extremely hardy and interestingly climbs anticlockwise. Cascading clusters of beautifully fragrant showy flowers up to 15cm long appear in spring just as it bursts into leaf. Exotic looking pinnate leaves are a fresh green colour with 11 downy leaflets. Although the Japanese Wisteria has shorter flower clusters they are usually brighter in colour. 

This beautiful climber is great for covering walls, archways, and pergolas in courtyards and city gardens as well as making great container plants for patios, conservatories and greenhouses. These large Wisteria Vines are mature and flowering each year coming supported by their own espalier frame, so they are incredibly easy to place or plant to give that 'been there forever' look.   


Wisteria Brachybotrys 'Showa-beni': Lilac-pink scented flowers with a yellow spot in the centre of each bloom.


Wisteria Brachybotrys 'Shiro-kapitan: White scented flowers with a yellow centre.


Wisteria Brachybotrys 'Iko Yama Fuji: Pale lilac sented flowers mature from rich violet coloured buds.
