The neighborhood I live in must have the perfect growing conditions for wisteria because it is spectacular here. Every spring from bare, dry, twisted and tangled branches, come huge, billowy sprays of wisteria blossoms. The wisteria vine outside my window (see above) is so aggressive that it manages to pry open the screens and twist its way into my dining room. By summer I will have about 3 feet of wisteria growing inside the house. But the wisteria plant pictured at the Friends house takes the prize for the most spectacular one I've ever seen. Note that in addition to engulfing the house with blossoms it continues up the power wires. Wow.
