Wisteria frutescens are the smallest racemes produced by any Wisteria. It is considered shade tolerant, but will flower only when exposed to partial or full sun.

Wisteria 'Amethyst Falls' comes from a premium plant breeding program and as a result exhibits a less aggressive and slightly smaller Wisteria than others of the genus. Many bonsai artists employ American wisteria for its manageably-sized flowers, and it is charming as a woodland flowering vine.
