Which Garden Plant Supports Are Right for Your Wisteria?

Posted on

As we've discussed before in this blog,  different plants climb in different ways. A plant's method of climbing will play a large role in determining the best kind of  garden plant supports you'll want to have in place for them. Giving them the proper support and growing environment can result in a lush, beautiful garden that blooms and grows almost effortlessly. If you are searching for an easy-to-grow climbing plant, the wisteria vine might be the right one for you.

Wisteria. Wisteria is beautiful and hardy but will need to be watched as it can become invasive and take over neighboring plants. It's an easy climbing plant to get started as it doesn't need much help growing. It will do great growing on your porch railing or a fence, and the large purple cascading blossoms are a huge payoff. It can take a while for it to bloom, though, so you'll need to give it up to six years to adjust to its new home. Don't let it fool you, though; it can grow up to 10 feet a year, so keep an eye on it and trim it back as needed.  

If you don't have a good location near your porch or fence to grow your wisteria, you can create a trellis or other garden plant supports with our C-BITE plant clips. Grab some garden stakes and some C-BITE clips and create a framework for your wisteria. Simply stick the framework into the ground near your wisteria and watch it grow! You can get ideas for a wisteria framework on our website and place an order for the C-BITE clamps that you need online.
