Chinese Wisteria (Wisteria sinensis) or Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda). A member of the Pea family, this exotic, low-growing ornamental vine is known for its hardiness and aggressive nature. If it is not controlled from landscaping plantings, it can overtake native shrubs and trees. Blooming between April and June, its flowers are recognized as long clusters of velvety seed pods averaging 6" in length. The flowers can appear in colors of blue, purple, pink, or white. Wisteria was planted by the Large family to decorate along porches and walls of the farmhouse.
