Wisteria is a twining climber that can grow to 5 metres. Its dense deciduous leaves are composed of 13 to 19 pale green oval leaflets. It has spectacular flower clusters up to 1.8 m long. Unfortunately, in our area the flower buds often don’t survive our harsh winters, so the plants can’t always be expected to bloom. However, the shape and foliage of these shrubs add ornamental interest to a garden.
