Comments: This is a selection found in East Texas that produces sweet scented lavender flowers hanging in large grape-like clusters below the foliage. This wisteria is reported to be a bit less vigorous than the Chinese or the Japanese wisterias. Provide full sunlight and a well drained soil. Annual pruning is required to keep excessive growth checked.
