Bailey Nurseries: First Editions Summer Cascade Wisteria

May 19, 2014 -  By

Known as Wisteria macrostachya ‘Betty Matthews,’ this flowering vine blooms on new growth, covering the plant with flowers beginning in June. It’s ideal for covering an arbor or pergola — adding shade, fragrance and ambiance to your outdoor space with its 15- to 25-ft height. Summer Cascade’s long, showy flowers open to a deep blue-lavender, then fade as the season progresses in Zones 4 to 8. In late summer, the plant produces seedpods that add multi-season interest. Research at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum found Summer Cascade to be more reliably cold hardy than other varieties.
