Wisteria Wisteria: A deciduous flowering tree with a distinctly floral aroma, wisteria plants can grow as high as ten to twenty feet with sturdy support. Wisteria sinensis is an Asian native species, frequently found growing naturally in the woods and natural areas throughout the United States. You can plant wisteria in either full sunshine or partially sunny conditions, with organics like hardwood mulch, peat moss, or shredded leaves added to loose soil. This vine is rugged: drought-tolerant and cold-tolerant. Care is minimal, including trimming to guide the growth or to remove frost damage. Although some people describe wisteria flowers as purple, TN Nursery explains to customers that they are usually closer to blue with a slight tinge of purple. Where to Plant Wisteria Plants Wisteria is a prolific bloomer in the last weeks of spring. It might take two seasons or so for you to see them on full display, but these abundant, lush flowers are well worth the wait! Wisteria will grow to form clusters or thickets, creating dense foliage after blossoming. Here are three ways you can use this hardy plant: Create a privacy hedge: If you have close neighbors, install a tall support structure and plant wisteria to protect your privacy. Barrier hedge: Do you have pedestrians use your yard as a cut-through? Wisteria will grow into a thick barrier hedge. Cover an old, unsightly building: A wisteria plant can quickly cover an unattractive barn or shed--make it a charming, rustic focal point instead of a tear-down project. Wisteria prefers full sun or partial sunshine; it will tolerate shade, although you will not get profuse blossoms. The Graceful and Elegant Look of Wisteria The brown stem of wisteria will form into lovely, twisted shapes as they wanter into a vine. You can "train" it to grow straighter with some time and patience. Wisteria leaves are green and elliptical, growing in an alternative pattern. They are compound and grow in clusters of about seven to fifteen leaflets. Leaves are approximately six inches long. The flowers of the wisteria will stop you in their tracks with beauty. Tiny pea-shaped blue-violet flowers emerge in enormous, gracefully drooping clusters. They appear almost like delicate bunches of grapes. The scent is heavenly!

Lilac Shrub Syringa vulgaris, the famous lilac, is a TN Nursery customer favorite shrub that blooms every spring across the cooler USDA plant hardiness zones in the United States.

They form on sturdy stems in an opposing pattern, are heart-shaped, and bright emerald to dark green in hue. Lilac flowers are the real star of the show. Though only blooming for two weeks or so, they are worth the wait for that short window each spring. Each tiny flower has four long petals, forming a narrow tubular shape.
