Amethyst Falls is a non-invasive American variety of Wisteria which differs from others on the market which are of Asiatic origin. When in flower, Amethyst Falls sports a massive display of deep lilac coloured flowers which are produced on shorter than usual racemes (flower stems) giving a fuller effect. Flowering begins in spring with repeat flushes throughout summer. This is a climber which can be trained to climb posts or trellis, or when planted in a garden bed, can be left to trail over retaining walls, rockeries or embankments. It also looks fantastic when trained up a large tripod structure, and used as a feature in any garden. Grows approx 3m tall x 2m wide.
