Texas Wisteria

Wisteria frutescens

Description:

American Wisteria can grow up to 15m long over many supports via powerful clockwise-twining stems. It produces dense clusters of blue-purple, two-lipped, 2-cm-wide flowers on racemes 5–15 cm long in late spring to early summer. These are the smallest racemes produced by any member of the Wisteria family.

Habitat:

The wildllife garden is about half an acre of native plants specifically planted for habitat. The main water source is a pond that is filtered by two gravel streams. It is managed as a no pesticide yard, letting the insects and birds maintain balance.

Notes:

This plant blooms profusely before the leaves and then again throughout the season. These blooms are frequented by bumble bees.
