Wisteria vines are very fast growing vines that will twine around branches and climb the tallest trees, lattices and pergolas rapidly. Wisteria is best used when planted to climb across wires and to grow horizontally across open structured lattice roofs that cover terraces and patios. When wisteria is planted to grow on these structures, the purple flower clusters of wisteria vines will bloom vigorously, and the perfumed weeping flowers hang down like clusters of grapes, and the delicious aroma of wisteria is very similar to that of ripe grapes. Wisteria vines are one of the first plants to flower in the spring, and the blue-purple flowers are the most popular to buy, but white wisteria vines are also available to buy but very rare, but even rarer is the aromatic, delicate pink wisteria.
