Newer isn't always better!!

Wisteria floribunda 'Macrobotrys' has been around under one name or another for at least 400 years.

Glowingly written about by Kaempfer in the 1700's & again by Siebold in the 1830's. It takes longer to mature & begin flowering than many of the newer cultivars but those with a little patients will begreatly rewarded with the longest flower racemes of any Wisteria. Easily reaching 3' but 5' & 6' racemes are not unheard of!
