Common Name American Wisteria Variety 'Amethyst Falls'
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Wisteria frutescens
Description This native Wisteria is much smaller than the oriental species that has aggressively taken over some landscapes and woodland areas, this species is much better behaved and slower growing. Since this American Wisteria blooms later when the leaves have formed, the danger of being burnt back by late freezes is rare. Small clusters of bright lavender pendulous flower clusters and the rich amethyst flower color gives this variety its name. The leaves turn a nice golden yellow in the fall and the naked vines offer wonderful winter interest. Wistera frutescens is native to rich moist soils along ravines and bottom lands although it will grow in average garden soils.
