Millettia reticulata


Not actually a wisteria, this twining vine will quickly ramble with an untamed and spirited habit, using stems that twist around upright supports. In summer, long panicles of pea-like blooms emit a stunning scent. Low maintenance and evergreen in mild areas, ideal for quickly covering garden structures. Loved by bees and butterflies.
Prefers moist, well-drained soil in part shade. Height & spread 3m (10'). Fully hardy perennial. Supplied in 9cm pots.

Additional Information

Very rare and very fragrant. Mature established plants become drought tolerant and low maintenance. Often referred to as the Evergreen Wisteria can keep its leaves all season in the UK when planted in a sheltered spot, however it really should be noted as a semi-evergreen Wisteria. It becomes a large specimen with a vigorous rapid growth rate ideal for quickly covering structures within the garden. Hardy to -12C.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
