Wis­te­ria and roses

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

An epic duo for a spring wall or per­gola is to al­low the scented mauve Wis­te­ria sinen­sis to twine and fight it out with the thorn­less rose Rosa banksiae.

This com­bi­na­tion of mauve against soft lemon is a clas­sic at any time of the year but you will need lots of space to let them play. Prune the rose straight after flow­er­ing in spring while leav­ing the wis­te­ria to be tack­led in sum­mer.
