Propagation is easy, but it should not happen by seeds. They may sprout quickly but could take decades before blooms appear. The best propagation method is by summer cuttings or by layering the branches. To layer branches, a branch from the adult plant needs to be bent over and covered up by the ground. A heavy object should be placed on top of the mound to keep the limb in place. Let it remain throughout the winter. By spring time, there should be enough roots for it to be sufficient. Either of these methods still may not see blooms for several years. With its beautiful blooms and sweet fragrance, wisteria can be enjoyable for years to come as long as it is kept under control.
