Cooke's Purple™ Wisteria

Wisteria sinensis 'Cooke's Purple'

A recognized favorite with prolific, stunning, weeping 18-inch racemes that burst with slightly fragrant purple pea-like blooms in spring before leafing out on a twining vine that is perfect for arbor, trellis or fence. Works well trained into a tree form. Produces smaller blooms sporadically throughout the summer.
