Wisteria sinensis. CHINESE WISTERIA. China
LEGUMINOSAE (Pea family)

Well known as an attractive blue-flowering vine climbing over arbors or on walls, the wisteria nevertheless develops a substantial trunk and can be grown as a freestanding tree. Visit attractive examples at Governor’s Corner, at the pavilion east of Hoover Tower, near Hacienda Commons at Rains Houses, and in the Amy Blue Garden at 651 and 655 Serra Street.
