Wisteria floribunda Black Dragon (aka Wisteria floribunda Yae-Kokuryu) has pea-like, violet-blue flowers with white and yellow markings and a delicate fragrance, held in pendant clusters. Velvety seedpods follow. The foliage of this ornamental vine emerges bronze in spring and matures to bright green then buttery yellow in autumn.
Fast growing and vigorous, it is ideal for covering walls, arches, pillars, pergolas, fences, trellises and established trees, although initial vertical support will be needed. It prefers a sunny spot, and will twine up any support you provide, but allow it plenty of room for the roots to run.
