Grafting wisteria

Posted by countymounty 6-ish Tulsa, OK (My Page) on

I would like to know if anyone has experience with and/or recommendations for grafting wisteria vines? I am interested in growing wisteria at our new home. We had several Japanese wisteria (W.floribunda - Macrobotrys) at our old home and while we liked the purple flowers hanging down, it was a constant battle keeping ahead of the spreading roots. We also had several Evergreen eisteria vines (Milletia reticulata). The roots of the Evergreen vines did not spread like the Japanese vines did, but we did not like the red flowers that formed on top of the vine instead of hanging down below. I was thinking about grafting a Japanese vine to an Evergreen root stock and was wondering if anyone has done that or if there is a better combination. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm pretty sure the vines have to be the same Genus. From the names you listed, it looks like you have different Genus.
I suppose it is possible for some plants to graft across Genus.

I'm in the process of grafting a white wisteria onto a purple one so I will have two color flowers from the same vine. The vine is growing all alone so I can keep control of the beast.

Here is what I have tried and failed:
Winter season, Side veneer graft (see most propagation books for description)

Summer Season, Bud graft.

I will try both of them again this year.

I have been successful with both types of grafts for apples and pears but not with wisteria yet. My white and purple
vines are both Japanese wisteria.
