A lovely, fragrant native wisteria! Vines are winter hardy and bloom far more reliably than non-native wisterias. Flowers best in full sun but can tolerate some shade. Large, sturdy supports are best, such as large arbors, gazebos, or sacrificial fences (older vines will completely cover large sections of fence and eventually warp it)- vines on smaller supports need regular pruning to maintain shape.
Flowers are self pollinating.
