Yellow Chinese Wisteria-10 Seeds-One of the most amazing Wisterias.
Yellow Chinese Wisteria - 10 Seeds
Chinese Yellow Wisteria, Oriental Yellow Wisteria, Far East Wisteria, Cascading Flower Tree, Shirobana Shina Fuji, Jako Bush
Description: This twining deciduous vine is awesome in springtime as it leafs out and flowers with large, drooping racemes (grapelike clusters) of Bright Yellow, fragrant flowers. This tough woody vine often climbs high into tree canopy when grown in mild winter climates. It is stunning to see a wisteria draped from the limbs of a tall pine when in full bloom, a scene made more memorable by the blossoms' appealing fragrance. Leaves are compound and consist of 7 to 13 leaflets to about 3 in (7.6 cm) in length. The white flowers are followed by attractive velvety pods 6 in (15.2 cm) in length. In winter, wisteria is a tangled mass of naked woody stems that may or may not be picturesque depending on culture and circumstance. Yellow Chinese wisteria is usually very long lived and trunks can become quite large and attractively gnarly with age.
Location: Chinese or sweet wisteria is native to China.
Culture: Yellow Wisteria is very easy to work with; it can grow in full sun or heavy shade, in which case it will grow until it reaches a satisfactory level of light. It is not fussy about soil type or moisture, although its preference is a reasonably a moist, well drained, rich to average mix.
Height: Up to 35 feet when growing free with no care, as a bonsai, you can control the growth height. As a potted plant, you can expect 4 to 8 feet, depending on location and other factors.
Leaves: To 12" (30 cm) long; pinnately compound; 7-13 ovate to elliptical leaflets; each leaflet 2-4" (5-10 cm) long.
Fruit: 4-6" (10-15 cm) pod; brown; covered in a fine fuzz.
Flowers: May – July/August in long dropping raciness of bright Yellow color.
Light: Sun preferred.
Hardiness: USDA Zones 3a to 9b.
Propagation: Seed is the preferred method, with cuttings, layers, and grafts being the next option, though not as successful.
Discussion: Wisteria is noted primarily for the beauty and perfume of its showy, deliciously fragrant flowers. Its rapid rate of growth makes it a good candidate when fast coverage is desirable. North America is home to two beautiful native wisterias, but the Asian varieties have been much more widely planted. These exotics are said to be able to reach heights of 65 feet (20 m) and stem diameters of 15 inches (37.5 cm). Use wisteria as a container specimen, even a bonsai if so desired. It is also beautiful trained over an arbor or espaliered against a building. This white variety, alba, is especially effective when in bloom, planted next to a pond where its beauty can be doubled by reflection. With constant pruning, wisteria can be trained to a small tree or bonsai-like specimen plant.
Growth Habit: Wisteria can grow into a mound when unsupported but is at its best when allowed to clamber up a tree, pergola, wall, or other supporting structure. Whatever the case, the support must be very sturdy, because mature Wisteria can become immensely strong and heavy wrist-thick trunks and stems. These will certainly rend latticework, crush thin wooden posts, and can even strangle large trees. Wisteria allowed to grow on houses can cause damage to gutters, downspouts, and similar structures. Its pendulous racemes are best viewed from below.

Purchased monkey puzzle tree seeds. They arrived on time and in acceptable packaging, but the seeds are way too tiny. This type of tree produces large seeds, usually 1.5 to 2 inches in length. The seeds I received where not even 1/16 of an inch.
Emailed seller twice regarding my surprise and concern and have not received a response.
My recommendation: Find another seller.
