Native Wisteria..... not Japanese or Chinese for your Princeton Garden

Check out the native Wisteria which is more delicate and less invasive.  You will need sun and more sun! It will not hurt a fence or grow out of control.    Remember your natives in the garden.  They are easier to care for as a whole and will really be enjoyed by the bees!


  1. They look great. How much pruning is involved?

  2. Prune the vegetative branches back to six-inch spurs along the main vines in late summer. The whole plant is more delicate so you will not be worried about it taking down your fence or arbor or roof like the Chinese variety.
