Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria Floribunda)

1/64 sec | f/14 | ISO 320

Dramatic clusters of blue-violet to red-violet flowers with an intoxicating fragrance grace this vigorous twining climber. Its springtime cascading flower clusters can grow to 3 feet long or more in some cultivars. Blooms typically open first at the base and last at the tip of each cluster. Trunk diameter can reach 7 to 8 inches after 20 years, and the plant can climb to 35 or more feet in height, though its size is easily controlled by pruning.

  1. We had a large wisteria over our patio and during the spring the perfume was beautiful. Eventually of grew so large it crushed the struts over the patio and the poles that held it up, so it had to go. Fortunately a neighbour has a wisteria tree so i can relive yesterday with the perfume :-o)
