Considered a woody perennial vine, wisteria has been part of the south for generations. The growth pattern of wisteria is well, aggressive to say the least. If you have a sunny location and a strong structural support, you will be rewarded with cascades of fragrant lavender blossoms so heavy, they resemble grapes hanging on the vine. The scent is like no other, as subtle as it is sweet. Again, a heat lover and very long lived, wisteria is normally used as a specimen plant because...one is enough!
