One of the most popular of all Wisteria and a very vigorous climber. Sprays of lightly scented drooping clusters of lavender blue flowers up to 30 cm long occurring profusely before the leaves emerge in spring.

Originates from China.

Adaptable to most soils and conditions, drought and frost resistant.

Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-24°C

Swaisona seeds germinate readily, however they do have a hard outer coating which is impervious to water. To assist in the uptake of moisture for germination to occur seed best scarified by pre-treating with hot water.

Hot water treatment is recommended for this species.

  1. Place the seed in a container and pour in just boiled water and allow to soak for 30 seconds.
  2. Transfer to warm water and soak 24 hours.
  3. Sow seed 4-5 mm deep.
  4. Place in a warm shaded or semi shaded position to avoid dying out.
  5. Keep warm & moist, avoid drying out or waterlogging the growing mix.
  6. Germination should occur in 14-28 days @ 18-24°C

Note: Seed can be nicked with a sharp knife as an alternative to the boiling water and then soaked in warm water.

General note: Seeds of many plants are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
