Gardeners' Notes:

This plant, while beautiful and with great smell has taken over a better part of my garden. It is impossible to get rid of. I have even used brush clearer with no luck. Please be careful unless you want this EVERYWHERE!

have had this species for some time now and i adore it ! absolutely gorgeous plant if you dont mind training and caring for a fairly fast growing plant.

the wisteria propagates by thier roots.
they branch out underground and after a while rise up and begin to form,
to produce new plants from an old one simply cut a 6-whatever inch section of a set of roots that has started to sprout and already has its first leaves, then plant:)
