Vigorous, woody climber, producing highly fragrant pendant racemes of pale violet-blue flowers, marked with deeper violet-purple keels. Foliage is pale green, turning to a buttery golden yellow in autumn. Grown in fertile soil and in full sun or part shade, and can be left to grow into a large tree or trained along a fence or pergola. Fully hardy. Height: 6-10m

According to the Royal Horticultural Society, Wisterias can be left to ramble unchecked where space allows but will usually flower more freely and regularly if pruned twice a year. The removal of growth in summer allows better air circulation and more sunlight to reach the base of the young growths, encouraging better ripening of the wood and improving the chances of flower bud formation. Restricting the amount of vegetative growth and encouraging short, flowering spurs will result in more flowers. For more information, visit this site: https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=242
