Wisteria Floribunda Vs Wisteria Sinensis - Knowledgebase Question

Boulder City, NV
Question by JB80

Local nurseries to stock only Wisteria Sinensis. Longer flowering of Wisteria Floribunda would seem more desirable. Any problems growing this in southern Nevada?

Wisteria sinensis (Chinese Wisteria) is simply a better performer in the west. It blooms at an earlier age and it blooms in considerable shade. Wisteria floribunda (Japanese Wisteria)blooms over a longer period of time, but the flowers are smaller and therefore do not provide the spectacular show of the Chinese Wisteria. You can grow either plant in southern Nevada. A local nursery can order W. floribunda for you if you'd like to try growing it. Best wishes with your wisteria!
