Scarlet Wisteria, Red Wisteria
The large, glowing orange and red flowers appear in spring and early summer in dense wisteria like sprays. The Scarlet Wisteria develops into a medium to large shrub with mimosa like foliage. Remove the spent flowers and seedheads to help promote rebloom. The beautiful pea-like flowers attract a variety of bees.

The Scarlet Wisteria is not always a long-lived plant and may die out after a few years. Save a few seeds to replant it periodically.

The Scarlet Wisteria or Red Wisteria is considered an invasive species and can be aggressive particularly along waterways or in areas where it could escape into storm drains. Please plant this species responsibly wherever you grow it. Removing seeds and disposing of them properly should help to prevent its spread into sensitive areas as well as prolonging flowering. Item # 634.
