Chinese Wisteria — Wonderful Fall Color

Deep, deep purple blooms in autumn.

Deep, deep purple blooms in autumn.

The garden has been through a difficult summer drought.  Then one week ago today the sky opened up with thunderstorms and we had 8 inches of rain in one evening.  It’s rained every day since.  Rather than mourn those plants that didn’t survive the drought or those that are now withering from being waterlogged, I went shopping.  I’ll share my finds with you over the next few days.

The first is this Chinese Wisteria, Millettia Taiwanensis.  Evergreen vine with spectacular purple flowers that bloom in autumn.  I haven’t planted it yet, waiting for rain to stop.
