Chinese Wisteria is indeed a beautiful flowering vine that can attain heights to 40 feet, with branches and stems 8 to 10 inches in diameter! The leaves of the Chinese Wisteria are wavy and tapered toward the tip. The fruit is a hairy, flat, approximately 6-inch-long pod that contains the seeds. Long, dangling panicles of very fragrant purple, white, or lavender flowers appear in spring.

I love wisteria, but if you are not careful it will take over your world! I like to pull the vines/runners and make wreathes to decorate.
