Wisteria sinensis Chinese wisteria

Wisteria at Haas Center Sairus Patel, 20 Mar 2021

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 at the southern corner of the Haas Center.
