Japanese wisteria is a deciduous, woody ornamental vine that climbs trees high into the canopy, to more than 60 feet. It twines upwards in a counterclockwise direction. The stems are slender, brown and densely pubescent when young, becoming hairless with age.
It was first brought from Japan to the United States in the 1830s. Since then, it has become one of the most highly romanticized flowering garden plants. It is also a common subject for bonsai, along with Wisteria sinensis (Chinese wisteria).
The Japanese Wisteria Bonsai Tree is a deciduous shrub with dark green leaves and a gray-brown trunk. The branches grow like vines, so they are easily shaped, and it produces the most spectacular flowers out of the Wisteria family. Very showy, purple, or white, pea-like, fragrant flowers grow in long-hanging clusters.
It is a hardy tree, therefore needs to be grown outdoors. Needs a lot of water during the growing season and less water in the winter. Grows best in moist but well-drained soil. It can tolerate a variety of soil.
