Evergreen Wisteria

Evergreen wisteria, Millettia reticulata,  is a large vine that can be used to solve many landscape issues.  This is a great plant to create privacy from a too close neighbor, to add shade atop a pergola or an arbor or to hide something ugly and permanent in the garden.

This fast growing vine needs sturdy support to support its full size.  Unlike true wisteria, evergreen wisterias flowers bloom above the glossy dark green foliage in the summer or fall.  These rose-purple blooms are fragrant and eye catching.  Evergreen wisteria is evergreen during warm winters.

Evergreen wisteria can be planted in a raised bed or container in an area that it will receive full sun. Be sure to water regularly.
