Flowers are all the rage right now. I mean obviously, it’s spring. One visit to the Home Depot Garden Area, and I want to build a huge garden full of delicious-smelling flowers.
Move Over Cherry Blossoms! The Wisteria Are Here.
I don’t just want a garden, I want a flowering fairyland! Luckily for me (and you) Home Depot now carries wisteria plants. You know, those beautiful climbing plants that often look like trees raining down flowers.
Late April or early May is the perfect time to head to Home Depot to grab up these beauties. Spring is when these gorgeous flowering plants begins to bloom to life.
Thanks to Home Depot, and Home Depot online, you can get the beautiful wisteria root for only $25. If that weren’t great enough, these roots are already 2 years old, and between 12 and 18 inches tall! They’ve done the hardest work for you.
You can make your own flowering fairyland full of wisteria for only $25 a plant. Give me 15, please!
How To Grow A Wisteria Root
Wisteria is known as a bine (somewhere between a vine, a shrub, a tree, and a flowering plant), and grows in pink, purple, white, or blue blooms. It is a vigorous climbing plant (Read: It will take over, and it’s strong). Because of this, you want to make sure it is well supported during growth.
Wisteria plants have been known to take down small trellis work, so planting them near a sturdy fence or larger tree is better. This allows them the strength to climb.
Wisteria plants need a lot of water and care as they grow. They can grow in pretty much any soil that is in direct sunlight, but you want to make sure they get plenty of water each week to keep them moist. They also need a good draining system.
Fertilization of this plant can help it grow and bloom, but stay away from fertilizer containing nitrogen, as this plant is already high in this nutrient.
It is important to note that the seeds can be toxic if swallowed, so watch your pets around this bloom. You don’t want them eating the plant.
Wisteria plants are extremely beautiful, and are hardy plants as long as they are cared for, especially in the beginning. They will give you smiles for years to come.
