White Chinese Wisteria

Common name:White Chinese Wisteria
Botanical name:Wisteria sinensis 'Alba'

While the sinensis is similar to the floribunda, it bears more rounded, full clusters of strongly fragrant flowers which open more or less, all at once. There are usually 13-15 leaflets per leaf, and they require full sun and average to little watering. This is a white flower variety.-Monterey Bay Nursery
