Comments: This white selection is an excellent vine to use on garden structures provided they are strong enough to handle the massive growth of this vine. Wisterias provide quick and heavy shade in summer when growing on structures, but annual pruning is required to keep growth controlled. Plant wisteria in full sunlight and far enough from other plants and objects so that the vine cannot escape to other parts of the garden.
