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 aggressive Asian species which are often included on invasive plant lists. Overall, a valuable plant for growing on a trellis or adding vertical accent to other areas of the garden.
