Product Description
Product Description
Wisteria macrostachya 'Blue Moon' (Blue Moon Wisteria) * Full sun to part shade * Zone 4-9 * 25' tall Cold-hardy to -40 degrees F with no loss of flowering ability!!! A remarkable cultivar of our native Kentucky Wisteria! Blooms 3 times each Summer! Wisteria macrostachya 'Blue Moon' we are excited to bring you this remarkable cultivar of the native Kentucky Wisteria. Not only is it cold-hardy to -40 degrees F with no loss of flowering ability, it also blooms 3 times each summer, assuring you of fragrant flowers for months. Vigorous, quick-growing, and tirelessly floriferous, this Wisteria is certain to become a classic for the American garden. The fragrance is sweet, intense, and very addictive -- be sure to plant 'Blue Moon' where it can share its scent with garden visitors and even indoors through open windows and doors! The first flush of bloom is in early summer, with a brief rest before the second and then third repeats. Imagine all the flowers you will have for vases as well as garden enjoyment! But its tremendous bloom strength is only one of 'Blue Moon' attributes. It's also fully hardy, not only able to withstand severe winters but to bloom unimpaired afterwards. Bred in Minnesota by Harvey and Brigitte Buchite, it has weathered -40 degrees F without damage. At last, a Wisteria that thrives even in the far north! 'Blue Moon' is a vigorous, quick-growing vine, reaching 25 feet long within just a few years. It needs no pruning, and should only be trimmed back if necessary after the final flowering. Let it ramble across pergolas, over arches, and up trellises and other ultra-sturdy supports, dangling its huge blooms along the way. A fully blooming 'Blue Moon' is a breathtaking sight! Give this vine as much sunlight as possible for best flowering. It flourishes in moist, well-drained soil enriched with compost and other organics. We cut these back every year to encourage branching and general maintenance. Blue Moon grows 3 to 6 feet a year after it is planted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy buyer!, May 29, 2015
Very pleased with this purchase! The first photo is right after I opened the box. The second photo is one week later. Came fairly well packaged but in perfect condition even after the box was beat up quite a bit.

Planted the wisteria by a trellis yesterday. Can't wait to keep seeing it grow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Looked dead, but it's very much alive and growing fast!, June 18, 2015

Billy R (Frederick, MD) - See all my reviews
Received the plant and it was dormant. It looked pretty much dead. Don't give up hope on it. I bought this about 2 months ago and it was only about a foot tall with nothing at all but a twig. It has now grown into a very much living tree(see picture). Took off with some sprouts in about 2 weeks... then after another 2 weeks I started to get branches. I wasn't expecting it to grow this fast, so I'm very happy.

UPDATE - It's been a little over a year and the Wisteria is growing like crazy. I added a new picture to show it's progress. It has grown from a foot or so to about 6 feet in one year! Really happy with this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Update. This vine has really taken off. It's been less than 2 growing seasons and I have over a dozen flower buds!, July 23, 2016
Built the arbor specially for this vine. I bought the plant in the fall 2015 and kept it potted over the winter in the garage (Northeast). Very little sign of life above but the roots were very active! Come spring soon as ground thawed I planted and mulched and have watered sporadically. It has really taken off! Each day I'm guiding new shoots! Got to have at least 3 leaders 6 ft long!! Be patient you will be rewarded.
