Seed of the Week: Wisteria

The dime-sized seeds from last week’s mystery seed were from a wisteria vine.


The elegant purple flowers remind me of old-fashioned gardens. I always envision a two-story Victorian home with wisteria draped over it.



The seeds from last week were not from this beautiful plant, which I saw on the roadside in California.

This is probably the Chinese wisteria, which can be invasive in some areas. There is also an American wisteria. The flowers are more compact.

    I have read that it will grow here with some extra care. We’re experimenting 🙂
