SKU 10VINE
Wisteria macrostachya, sometimes commonly called Kentucky wisteria, is a deciduous vine that is native to the south-central U.S. Like its cousin American wisteria (Wisteria frutescens), it is less aggressive and more manageable than the Chinese and Japanese wisterias, making it a good choice for home gardeners. Blue Moon is especially winter hardy and will produce flowers even in zones 3 and 4. The vine grows 15' to 25’ long and blooms in June, with occasional flushes of blooms later in the summer. The 6" to 12” long flower clusters are made up of fragrant, pea-like, blue flowers, followed by 4" long, velvety seedpods. Grow in full sun on a very sturdy arbor, pergola or other support.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
