The Chinese ‘Blue’ Wisteria is a wonderful flowering species that is one of the first flowers of spring. They thicken up quickly and responds well to drastic pruning when young. The species flowers before leaves emerge, so it is a wonderful display in early spring. They make take a few years after purchase to get old enough to flower. The brilliant blue flowers are absolutely amazing. Grown from seed at Kaede Bonsai-en, these trees are well established in 2 1/4" containers.
We cut both the Chinese and Japanese version back during the peak of summer and they back bud nicely making smaller trees.
