Millettia taiwanensis, Chinese Evergreen Wisteria, Tropical Wisteria

Millettia taiwanensis

Chinese Evergreen Wisteria, Tropical Wisteria
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Faboideae
Vine or creeperFull sunRegular waterPink flowersBlue, lavender, purple flowersRed, crimson, vinous flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Grown in U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) plant hardiness zones 9 through 11, Millettia taiwanensis is an excellent choice for adding a touch of exotic beauty to accent seascape beds, or follow a trellis, fence or other form of support. This evergreen vine or creeper plant reaches 4 to 6 feet tall with a spread of 8 to 10 feet and is known for its brilliant clusters of pink, blue, lavender, or purple and red or crimson vinous flowers.

Millettia taiwanensis is an easy-care, drought-tolerant shrub which requires full sun and regular watering during the growing season, especially in warmer regions or during droughts. When grown in containers, plant in a soil-based potting mix and water when the soil feels dry on the surface. In cold regions, bring the pot inside during winter months, as the plant is not hardy through cold, frosty temperatures.

The blooms, which appear from spring to summer, attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Prune regularly after flowering to keep it from becoming too unwieldy, and fertilize with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once a month.
