Wisteria: The Wisteria (Floribunda & Macrostachya) is a robust deciduous vine that is fast growing. Making it a desirable Bonsai that can achieve a very mature look in a relatively short period. The Wisteria is very hardy and can handle frost, but having its roots exposed in a pot and not being in the ground requires it to be winterized. The Wisteria produces stunning clusters of blue/purple fragrant flowers in late spring, giving it a distinct look. Wisteria Bonsai in bloom are a breathtaking sight. 


Wisteria requires full sun during the growing season (Spring to Fall), and the more sun, the longer and more abundant the flower clusters will be. 


  1. Wisteria requires a lot of water, so placing the Bonsai or Pre-Bonsai in a container that constantly has water in it and fills up every time the Bonsai is watered is ideal. If not possible, then the Wisteria can be watered twice a day in the morning and evenings during the warm summer months. 
  2. The Wisteria require less water during winter months, but the soil should still be moist and not allowed to dry out. 

  • Training: Wisteria is best pruned in early spring or late July after the flower clusters have dropped. Wiring is done in the fall after the leaves have fallen. Pay close attention to not pruning the flowers' shoots, which are distinguishable from the shoots or buds of new leaves. 

  • Repotting: young Wisteria needs to be repotted every other year before the buds open early spring. Mature Wisteria can be repotted every three to five years. 


YOUNG: 4"-12" tall, comes in a 6" grower's pot. 

MATURE: 8" - 16" tall, comes in an 8" handmade ceramic pot.

Wasn’t quite what I expected. Not at all like the picture. Maybe this was indicated and I missed it. Hoping for flowers next season.

Not quite what I Expected!

The wisteria is simply not what I expected as there were no pictures of what the plant would look like. I am not disappointed though as I like taking in challenges and helping this specimen grow into what I’m sure will eventually be a beautiful wisteria bonsai tree. I already have vision for the process :). The shopping experience was awesome, the communication from the company was superb, the care instructions were great, all much appreciated. I have two other very grown up bonsai trees and wanted to try something different! I am intrigued by Wisteria and the potential for a lot of beauty on the summer months. I would definitely shop here again and would love to afford something a bit more established. Thanks Bonsaistore!
