Q.Can I Pot Wisteria

Anonymous added on October 7, 2011 | Answered

Can I grow Wisteria in a pot? I have a bench with a wooden arch trellis over it and would like to plant something in a pot on either side. I would like a creeper that flowers and grows fast. I have tried Diplodenia and they did not grow more than a couple of inches in a year. I am in South Africa in the Western Cape, which has winter rainfall.

Wisteria normally do not make good container plants because they grow too big and too fast. but, that being said, if you use a large enough tub, the vine should be ok in a container. Also, I would make certain that the trellis is going to be sturdy enough to hold its weight as the vine grows larger.
