Wisteria 'Anwen'

Back in the mid 90s I selected & introduced 2 climbing plants named for daughters Mirranda & Anwen, one was the variegated climbing Hydrangea anomala petiolaris 'Mirranda'. The other was Wisteria 'Anwen'.

While Mirranda soon found her way into the trade both here in the US and in Europe. Anwen was never produced in large numbers but still found it's way into peoples collections & also to Europe including the Wisteira collection of the Ghent University Botanical Garden.

Last week a friend in Portland posted some photos of Anwen looking resplendent on his from porch. Besides the mass of wonderful flower racemes Anwen also as a strong sweet scent.

Thanks for sharing this great photo. I'm on the hunt for Anwen wisteria as well as Burford, and your post brought the beautiful vine to life. Most appreciated.
