In the garden: Wisteria

Cascading clusters of fragrant lavender blooms are short-lived but long-remembered. The hardy vine should be trimmed heavily after it blooms to keep it from taking over the garden or a tree canopy.
Light: Blooms best in full or part sun.
Size: Climbs over fences, trellises or buildings; can be trimmed to a shrub.
Water: Moderate
Bloom: Early spring
Cultivation: Plant Wisteria ‘Amethyst Falls,’ an improved native American Wisteria vine, not the more aggressive Asian varieties. Avoid high-nitrogen fertilizer, which encourages growth over blooms.
Latin name: Wisteria frutescens
