Design IdeasFill your late spring with the fragrant, pendulous flower clusters of this Wisteria. Train it on a sturdy arbor or let it cover a pergola or patio, where the flowers can hang through the structure like huge clusters of grapes.
Companion PlantsThis Wisteria looks great hovering over the spreading stems and white flowers of Spreading Spiraea (Spiraea decumbens). Benenden Blue Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis 'Benenden Blue') complements the vine's violet-purple flowers. For a fine contrast of form, try Twisty BabyTM Dwarf Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia 'Lace Lady'), with its low growth and wonderfully contorted branches.
