Fuji is the Japanese name for Wisteria floribunda, a species of flowering vine native to Japan. It produces long clusters of fragrant, bluish-purple flowers in spring, which can reach up to 50 cm in length. Wisteriais often used in gardens to grow over pergolas or facades, creating a stunning display of color and scent. Wisteria can also be grown as a bonsai tree, but it requires some special care and maintenance. It needs full sun exposure, regular watering and fertilizing, and frequent pruning to control its vigorous growth and promote flowering. Most wisteria bonsai are of medium or large size because the long flower clusters need some height to hang from. They are very well suited for bonsai, but their special feature is the flowers.
