  • not a tree; it is a wisteria vine.

    • Give Canadian a prize! Wisteria it is – a large agreesive climbing vine.

      There is a monster version of this same plant on the south side of a building next to the Russian Embassy on Connecticut Avenue.

      And they smell really strong too, almost grandma perfume like!

    Anyone see the nice Royal Paulownia in bloom on NH near the Petworth Metro? Cool tree.

    Wisteria vine cuttings in order for spring patio planting, check.

    Well, as said, it’s a wisteria, and yes, if it has been trained in tree-form, then it’s okaay to call it a tree. If it’s growing along a wire or pole, then it’s a vine. For those who want to grow them as vines, you would be wise to train it along a strong metal pole; wisteria will eventually crush flimsy wooden trellises.

  • Wisteria sinensis, beautifully pruned, probably at least 20 years old. Whoever owns it is doing a good job because it’s an invasive that can easily take over anything. (I agree with JohnnyReb)
