Wisteria is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae (Leguminosae), that includes ten species of woody climbing bines that are native to China, Korea, Japan, and the Eastern United States. The stunning photographs below show Japan’s largest wisteria plant and we have to admit, it looks absolutely magical.
The plant is located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan and is approximately 1,990 square meters and dates back to around 1870. It’s not the largest one in the world, but it looks absolutely fabulous.
Surely, it looks like a tree, but in fact it’s vine. Wisterias are actually vines that are held up on steel supports as they have the tendency to get very heavy. One you find yourself in Japan, make sure to visit this place and walk below the beautiful hanging blossoms!
