I Glicini        Der Glyzinien Les Glycines        The Wisteria Photos

The Wisteria originated in countries such as China, Japan, Korea, and America. This vigorous, growing, climbing shrub is graced with a spectacular blossoming of flowers in spring whilst in summer an abundance of fresh, green leaves enriches it completely. Not only will this rustic shrub withstand the toughest of winters but it is also gifted with a resistance to most pests and diseases.
The branches of these exuberant plants twist around their support like a liana, which makes them ideal for embellishing walls, gates, fences pergolas, railings, banisters, pillars or even leave them to climb and twist themselves around the trunks and branches of other trees. This adaptable shrub will also grow harmoniously on its own. In any case, it makes a perfect plant for the most modern to the most traditional of gardens.

The common wisteria (Wisteria sinensis) with its vivacious lilac coloured petals, is perhaps the best known variety of the wisteria family since it has been in circulation for a longer period of time as a result of its great public demand. Today, the nurseries and garden centre are able to provide us with many different varieties of this unique shrub, with distinguished shape, size and form and new vibrant colours.
In this site, we would like to present to professional and amateur landscapers and gardeners the different varieties of this splendid climbing shrub, which is becoming known and admired as it spreads its way around the world and show you that it hasnít lost any of its glamorous, oriental charm.
