Starting a Wisteria from a Cutting

March 4, 2015

Beautiful flowering WisteriaI have access to a plant that is at least 40' long and it climbed up and on top of a mobile home. How do I take cuttings and start rooting? I have the OK to do what it takes. Do I try and dig till I get roots or any ideas including when? I am in 8b to tell you my seasons. Any and all suggestions appreciated.

You just said you can take cuttings from a vine that is eating a house. Are you sure you want to? When it starts to send out new shoots in spring, break off a few and stick in a glass of water and put in window. Keep water level up, and it will grow roots. Plant in a container for about a year until bigger, and then if you still want to put it outside, put in ground. Wisteria is considered invasive to some degree.

Air layering will be fine. But cutting is easier and faster.

Does anyone have any experience with planting a limb (or stem) of a wisteria that was trimmed off of a vine? It has no root system.

My daughter has a wisteria bush and she wants to start one for me. How would she do that? She cut off a piece and put in water with no results.
