Wisteria does not want to bloom or blooms only sparsely - what to do?


Wisteria blooms exceptionally profusely if its location is well chosen and it is regularly watered and cut. Refined plants bloom earlier.

The wisteria blooms beautifully on an old facade.

The wisteria is very popular as a "facade climber". Especially in summer, when it enchants the green of the facade with its purple or blue and white panicles, it is an extraordinary feast for the eyes.
The disappointment is all the greater when the wisteria cares and produces only a few or no flowers. There are several causes of flowering tiredness during wisteria.

Here are 4 tips on how you can effectively counteract tired wisteria from the outset:

1 The location should be warm and dry

The wisteria prefers a sunny, warm place. If the chosen location is too shady and cool, it will not bloom or it will only produce sparse flowers. It is therefore advisable to consider in advance where climbers are optimally placed in the house or in the garden if they are to display their blooms in full in the summer.

2 Wisteria likes damp feet

Once the best possible location for the wisteria has been found, it will also get its regular place there. The wisteria likes "wet feet", on the one hand for its growth and on the other hand for a beautiful bloom.
You should therefore not water too sparingly. It is very important in hot summer. However, you should make sure that there is no waterlogging

3 Regular pruning makes flowering easy

Regular pruning encourages the wisteria to continue flowering reliably and abundantly in the future. The flower panicles are formed on the short shoots. If the branches are too long, the flower will fail to appear. Sometimes a second summer cut helps. The climbing plant is shortened for the first time in July. In August, young shoots can be cut back down to 3 leaves. The plant thus bundles its energy for flower formation.

4 Grafted plants at an advantage

The wisteria provides enough seeds after it blooms. Some hobby gardeners are slightly inclined to let young plants germinate from it. Wisteria grown from seeds has only moderate flowering success. It takes years for it to bloom. If he then flowers over time, these are rather sparse.
However, if you want to look forward to blooming soon after planting, we recommend that you purchase refined plants from the blue rain from the nursery.
