This miniature wisteria probably belongs to Wisteria sinensis. It makes thickets of 8-12 inch stems, with tiny leaves. It is one of the best for bonsai. Occasionally a stronger, flowering branch is produced, bearing small clusters of pretty lavender flowers. Sun, reasonably well drained soil, moderate watering during active growth. Hardy to 0 degrees F or below.
