Description / Wisteria 'Amethyst Falls'

Wisteria 'Amethyst Falls', like other wisteria, is a strong grower, reaching 30 feet or more. It is, however, not invasive like its Asian cousins. Wisteria 'Amethyst Falls', a native variety, is less vigorous and easier to manage, refraining from choking out trees over time, as some wisteria are wont to do - a distinct advantage in the South, where wisteria can run wild. All of these things make it an ecologically sensitive choice.

Wisteria 'Amethyst Falls' flowers sooner than the Asian types (some of which can take 10 years or more), blooming its first season with fragrant, vividly blue flowers on 4- to 6-inch racemes that appear in spring and repeat all summer. Its bloom also arrive about two weeks later than others, so late-winter frosts seldom affect flowering.

The many attributes of Wisteria 'Amethyst Falls', which include its deer and drought tolerance and its disease-resistant foliage, earned it a Georgia Gold Medal in 2006. This gorgeous vine is a perfect choice for pergolas, trellises, fences, arbors, and containers, attracting butterflies to your garden all summer long. It can also be trained as a free-standing tree - tie it to a sturdy 5- or 6-foot stake and prune the top to encourage branching.

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.

Amethyst Falls is beautiful!
Review by Laurie
I planted 2 AF vines in large pots last year. The deer grazed on them almost all year. This year, I wanted to enjoy the blooms, so have been spraying plants nightly with peppermint oil and water mix. So far, the deer, really axis, are leaving them. Not many flowers this first year, but enjoying each little burst of color.????

Amethyst Falls vs Blue Moon wisteria
Review by John Kirtley
Dallas Texas. Planted Amethyst Falls and Blue Moon wisterias side by side on the same fence. After two years. the Amethyst Falls is easily 20 times the size of the Blue Moon. The Amethyst Falls was unaffected by one of the hottest summers in Dallas record! Very highly recommended.
