An underutilized native vine from the southeastern United States. Offers an abundance of fragrant, lavender-blue flowers borne in oval, 4-8" dangling racemes. Flowers appear in early to mid summer, notably later than some other species of wisteria. Additionally, plants are more restrained than the Asian species which are often listed on invasive plant lists. Overall, a valuable vine for growing on a trellis or adding vertical accent to the garden.
