I agree I have been there when it's in bloom, it's stunning. Found this shot online.

Those are the seed pods. My wisteria made seed pods like that all the time. In fact I even planted seeds and got wisteria seedlings.

Wisteria is a powerful vine that shrinks as it grows. It actually pulled some brick pillars off their bases as it grew from one to the next along the side of a porch on a former house of ours. I think you will need a stout building like that one to support it!

I no longer have any wisteria in my garden and never had it on any structures or buildings. Mine just used to be a stand alone shrub (tree?) that needed constant pruning. No more, after years I couldn't stand the upkeep and dug them out. To this day I still have roots pop up foliage and need to dig again.

But directly over my fence line my neighbor has a wisteria so I do get to enjoy those lovely fragrant flowers each spring.

What kind of wisteria did you have that keeps popping up? Heh, thinking about begging for one of those little volunteers. Smiling

Too late. I dug them all up last week! Don't know its name, it had been here for 60 years.
