Pure Purple Flowers Repeat Throughout the Summer!

Vigorous Bloomer Remains Easy to Manage!

Reaching 30 feet or more, 'Amethyst Falls,' like other Wisteria, is a strong grower, though not as invasive�as its Asian cousins.�The native variety is less vigorous and easier to manage.

'Amethyst Falls' flowers sooner than the Asian types, blooming its first season with fragrant, vividly blue flowers on 4- to 6-inch racemes that appear in spring and repeat all summer. Arriving about two weeks later than others, its blooms are seldom affected by frost.

The many attributes of 'Amethyst Falls' include its deer and drought tolerance and its disease-resistant foliage. The winner of a�Georgia Gold Medal in 2006 'Amethyst Falls' is a perfect choice for pergolas, trellises, fences, arbors, and containers, attracting butterflies to your garden all summer long. .

Pruning should occur in late winter to shape and remove any undesirable growth. Another light trim after the first flush of flowers will improve branching and produce an encore bloom. Zones 5-9.
