Wisteria sinensis

I've always thought that wisterias in the tree form looked awkward, unlike its graceful climbing cousins. This beautiful specimen, one of three wisteria trees planted along a large yew hedge at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, changed my mind. It just proves that pruned properly and planted in the right spot, it can be just as stunning as the wisteria vines. Of course, W. sinensis is more spectacular because it flowers before the foliage comes out in full and so the entire tree is smothered in blooms.
