Wisteria sinensis

a little history...
Wisteria is a member of the Pea family, Fabaceae. The genus was named in honor of an anatomy professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Caspar Wistar (1761-1818). The genus includes ten species of deciduous climbing vines, two native to the southern United States and the others native to eastern Asia.
Wisterias are vigorous, twining vines with wide landscape usage where space permits and gardeners are committed to keeping them in bounds. Among their attributes are hardiness, vigor, longevity and the ability to climb high. They are greatly valued for their large, pendulous flower clusters that occur in the spring. Flowers are pea-like and may be white, pink, lilac-blue, bluish-purple or purple in color. The fruit is a long, green flattened pod that is not particularly ornamental. The plant climbs by means of twining stems and has alternate, pinnately compound leaves. Older, established plants may have a twisted, woody trunk several inches in diameter. This wisteria has been grown from a cutting from a flowering plant and will usually begin flowering earlier than most plants grown from seedlings.
The wisteria you have order is Wisteria sinensis or Chinese wisteria. The Chinese wisteria is a popular plant due to its flowering habit. It grows to a height of 25 feet or more and has flower clusters six inches to a foot in length, which open before the foliage has expanded. Individual flowers in the clusters open all at once for a very showy display. Flowers are lilac-blue and slightly fragrant. Plants are most showy from early to mid-May in most seasons.
