Wisteria Amethyst Falls is a vigorous growing vine boasting numerous 8" long fragrant purple blooms on one year old plants. Amethyst Falls will bloom heavily in spring and repeat thru summer.   There is nothing more exotic than long dangling purple blooms gracing an arbor or trellis.

Soil: Adapts well to a ride range of soils, from mildly acidic to neutral. Prefers  well-drained, humus soil.
Light: Full to Partial -- Full sun assures optimum bloom.
Water: Water regularly- weekly or more often in extreme heat, until established. Do not over water.  It needs regular weekly watering twice a week and during high heat periods.  
Spacing: 4-6 ft
Fertilizing: Avoid high nitrogen fertilizers, which will produce excessive vegetation at the expense of flowering. Feed during the early growing season with a slow release fertilizer, higher in Phosphate.
Winterizing: Mulching the base of the plant will offer winter protection. If you live in a very cold area, and have had trouble in past years with getting your wisteria to bloom, there is a chance that the plant may be suffering from winter die back, which kills the blossom buds. If you suspect this is the case, wrapping the plant in burlap will help to protect the blossom buds.
Maintenance & pruning: If it's late fall or early in the winter (after the plant has shed its leaves but before snow has fallen), you can remove any dead growth, and do some cosmetic pruning to shape the wisteria vine. Keep in mind that any severe pruning in winter may affect next seasons flowering.
Pruning should be done about two months after it flowers. Cut the season's current shoots back to within three buds from the base. These buds will then bear the coming season's new shoots and flowers.

My plants arrived yesterday and it was packaged very nicely.  The plants looked gorgeous and healthy.  I'm so happy and excited to add these to my garden.  I can't wait to order many more plants from The Great Garden Plants!  You indeed have the great garden plants ;0).  I've ordered plants before from other places and this is the first I've been very happy with them!
