American Wisteria occurs infrequently in low open woods throughout much of the southeastern coastal plain area. It is not nearly as vigorous as the Chinese Wisteria which has escaped cultivation and festoons wild trees in our area, but it will still easily grow to 30 feet or more. White Wisteria has late spring and early summer flower clusters in 4 to 6 inch racemes of fragrant soft white. Grow this vine in full sun to light shade in average soil where you want the effect but perhaps not the strength of Chinese Wisteria. The white form is rare in the wild.
