Re: Identify this scented climbing plant?

Hi Richard,
It looks like Wisteria sinensis, "Chinese Wisteria". I am supposing the species sinensis due to the smaller inflorescences and highly scented description.
Best wishes,

proper name for wisteria variety

Question from Maureen Hulbert

In forum: Wisteria frutescens

I planted what I thought was a North American native wisteria, Wisteria frutescens 'Amethyst Falls'. I bought it from a reputable local native plant nursery here in Toronto, Canada. But your plant database calls "Amethyst Falls" a Chinese Wisteria - wisteria sinensis. How can i tell if I have a w. frutescens or a w. sinensis? I live adjacent to a natural area and I wanted a native plant.

Grafting a wisteria

Question from Gill

In forum: Ornamental plants

Hi everyone

I want to have a go at grafting a wisteria onto a rootstock. Do you do this to promote earlier flowering? Do you use wisteria sinensis seedlings or can you take a cutting from wisteria sinensis and grow it on and then use it? I want to have a go at training a wisteria into a 5 or 6ft standard. I've only grafted apple trees before so this is really new to me but I thought it would be exciting if I could get it to work. Also, could I just take a cutting from my wisteria sinensis growing on my back wall and train that as a standard (if I can get it to root)?

Thanks

Gill

Climbers for pergolas

Comment from David Sewell

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

Hi Debbie,

There are lots of scented climbers including quite a few useful evergreen ones. Have a look at:
Lonicera japonica cultivars like 'Halliana'
Clematis armandii
Jasminum officinale
Trachelospermum jasminoides
Wisteria sinensis (particularly 'alba')
Lots of climbing roses
Clematis Montana
Akebia quinata (has a vanilla scent)
Lathyrus odoratus (sweet pea)
Lonicera heckrottii

All best,
David

Climber for a west facing wall

Comment from David Sewell

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

Hello Sophie,

Interesting that you're not having much luck with Clematis. It might be worth hoofing out some of the soil in the border and replacing it with good new stuff or at least enriching the soil and then trying Clematis armandii which is white-flowering scented, evergreen and pretty vigourous.
One of the semi-evergreen scented Honeysuckles like Lonicera japonica 'Halliana' or 'Halls Prolific' would be worth a look too. Amazing scent! Wisteria sinensis is also mildly scented and would love a west facing wall but obviously isn't evergreen.

For small scented shrubs you could try one or two of the following:
Daphne odora 'Aureomarginata'
Lavandula - loads of varieties to choose from but Hidcote is a reliable old cultivar.
Lonicera purpusii - one of my favourites and flowering now.
Philadelphus 'Lemoinei'
Viburnum carlesii - another favourite of mine and now much easier to find than it used to be.

All best,
David
