Wisteria macrostachya 'Blue Moon'

Blue Moon wisteria

A vigorous, fast growing vine that loves slightly acidic, fertile, well drained soil and full sun, Wisteria frutescens var. macrostachya is less aggressive than other wisterias, but needs a sturdy structure to grow upon.  'Blue Moon' differs from the wild-type species in that it produces consistently blue (rather than occasionally white) flowers in the second or third year, and is also slightly hardier-- it can be grown up through USDA Hardiness Zone 4.
