Product Description

Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda). Japanese wisteria was brought from Japan to the United States in 1860 by George Rogers Hall. Since then, it has become one of the most highly romanticized flowering garden plants. It is also a common subject for bonsai, along with Wisteria sinensis(Chinese wisteria)

The flowering habit of Japanese wisteria is perhaps the most spectacular of the Wisteria family. It sports the longest flower racemes of any wisteria; they can reach nearly half a meter in length. These racemes burst into great trails of clustered blue flowers in early- to mid-spring. The flowers carry a distinctive fragrance similar to that of grapes.

Japanese wisteria can grow over 30m long over many supports via powerful clockwise-twining stems. The foliage consists of shiny, dark-green, pinnately compound leaves 10-30cm in length. The leaves bear 9-13 oblong leaflets that are each 2-6 cm long. It also bears brown, velvety, bean-like seed pods 5-10cm long that mature in summer and persist until winter. Japanese wisteria prefers moist soils and full sun in USDA plant hardiness zones 5-9. The plant often lives over fifty years.

Much to my great suprise, this seed is already sprouting!

Hooray! I didn't expect it to germinate so soon.

A bit of advice, nick the seed before planting to open up the shell. Then, use high grade seed starter soil. I also use distilled water (DO NOT USE TAP WATER)that has been slightly warmed to raise the temp of the soil to about 85 degrees. I water every morning (early) with just one teaspoon of warm water over the top of the seeded area to stimulate growth. This has worked very, very well for me with seeds in the past.

I am excited about growing this one. :D

I recieved the seeds quickly. I tested three of them to check the germination rate and two of the three germinated in a plastic bag with a damp paper towel beneath them in about three days. I am very excited to watch them grow in the pots I made and transplanted them into. The other two seeds are now in a plastic bag and hopefully I will see results very soon.

-I got what I wanted.

-The seller is good at communicating with you in the event that issues do arise.

-I am Happy.

Seeds arrived a day before they were expected, the package (and the seeds, which totaled 6) were in good shape. I look forward to watching them grow and I appreciate the chance to grow such a lovely plant for such an agreeable price.

I put one in a bag with a moist paper towel yesterday and am awaiting the results. I have heard of several different methods of germinating the seeds, ranging from the paper towel method, to planting just beneath the soil surface, to soaking, as well as nicking before soaking. However, they are hardy plants, and I figured the paper towel method would suffice for a first try.

I noticed that several individuals gave this store a lower rating due to not fully understanding or researching what they were buying first. So, some notes:

*The wisteria may not bloom for 10 years. If you would like one to bloom sooner, you should try growing a cutting from a mature plant.

*It is a vine plant, but can be trained into a bonsai tree through patience and effort. It will not look like it looks in the picture without a lot of work.

*The seller also cannot guarantee the seeds will germinate, as it depends on a variety of things that are out of his control once they have reached the buyers hands

Edit: The seed in the paper towel sprouted in about 5 days.

I bought the pack of seeds
followed directions I found that someone posted (not the ones that came with the seeds)
and the two I planted sprouted and are growing everyday.

soak seeds for 24 hours
plant and keep the soil moist by spraying water mist on it
not by watering but by misting
within a week they sprouted

worked on the two I tried it on.

I didn't do anything with the seeds - no soaking no nicking. I bought seed starter soil and 4" pots and planted them. I planted 5 and 2 have sprouted so far. I hope to grow at least one as a tree and train the other on a trellis. I've read they might take anywhere from 2 - 15 years before they bloom. I'm doing my research on ways to speed up maturity.

Update: 4 have sprouted and they increase in length about 30% every day.
Update: All 5 have sprouted.

Only one of the seeds has not germinated and the four that have are doing wonderful! I planted 3 in seed starter soil and started 2 in a wet paper towel. One of the seeds in the paper towel germinated on day 4 and the other is the seed that has not yet germinated. Within 8 days all of the seeds had sprouted through the soil and are doing great! I wish there was a way to post a pic on here!

I purchased these seeds as part of my desire to have a Bonsai I planted my self. I received 5 seeds and an email with instructions. I planted the seeds and only 1 germinated but that was OK because I only wanted one Bonsai. I'm also glad it germinated at all because according to the instructions I as supposed to leave it in the the back of the fridge for a long while and wait until a certain season. Obviously when I purchased these I was not aware of that fact since they don't publish that information with the product specs and I didn't want to wait that long so I just planted all of them and wished for the best. within a week and a half to 2 weeks 1 seed germinated and is currently a lovely sapling. It has now been almost three months and is the only one that has germinated thus far. Over all this is a good buy however I wish they would publish he instructions in he specs of he product.

I am giving 2 * because I wanted it and it does grow.. You dont get the proper instructions with the shipment, but there are plenty available online.. just check on web and you will get instructions how to take care of your plant.

The seeds I got did work for me.. more than 60% so I am happy,, but I am disappointed that I didnt get what I was expecting....... bonsai lovers knows what they want, and how to take care of the plants.. anyways! just dont get carried away with the picture posted. I must thank to one of the customer who posted one picture, atleast it will help in judging wht you getting..

This might take almost 7-10 years to bloom properly..
