Seen yesterday near AL/FL border, owning a southern Magnolia (M. grandiflora) tree, with countless runners/seedlings/both surrounding it. So irritated I forgot to check which way it was twining. Bronze colored new foliage. Blooms smelled like grape, NOT cat pee. :+) Are there enough features visible in the pics to determine which species? TIA!

Both Wisteria sinensis, and Wisteria floribunda are said to smell like grapes.

http://www.examiner.com/article/take-a-walk-down-wisteria-la...

Wisteria sinensis produces its flowers before the leaves appear, which can look spectacular in spring, and has stems that twine anticlockwise. W. sinensis is the species most suitable for walls where its shortish racemes are displayed to advantage.

Wisteria floribunda bears leaves and flowers at the same time and has stems that twine clockwise. It has the longest racemes of all the species and is shown to best effect on garden structures such as pergolas where the racemes can hang free, unimpeded by branches or foliage.
