Tree Wisteria – Bolusanthus speciosus

(20 seeds)

$4.35

Spectacular form and purple-blue flowers make this a superb bonsai or feature pot plant.

Whilst this plant appears delicate, it is quite tough and can handle regular pruning and repotting. It naturally grows with multiple stems, but can be easily trained as a single stemmed tree for informal upright forms.
