Wisteria - Springtime Flowers in North Carolina - Pictures Slide Show

This is my first Spring in North Carolina and I have to admit, I wasn't expecting to find something so amazing. All over where I live are these incredible purple flowers, Wisteria, growing all over. I love how they are up in the trees and in large bunches. I might have to plant some in my yard. Hope you enjoy my photos!

They are beautiful flowers but plant them away from everything else and keep hem trimmed or they will crawl all over your other plants and choke them out. That is what is happening at the farm and I am trying to kill some of the wisteria to save the other plants. I let it grow too wild.

Lovely floral colors and such a beautiful flower in general. I have always loved the sound of the flower's name "wisteria". Thanks for sharing this hub topic.

Man Granny, I wish I was up there at the farm to take pictures!!! I bet it's beautiful up in that area this time of year :) I did notice I would have to keep it under control but I was thinking once we get a fence up plant them on/near part of the fence so they have something to crawl on and it can be seen from both sides. So many ideas :)

Thanks Debbie :) This was my first year seeing them and I can't believe they don't last very long!!! Ready for next year to roll around already so I can get more pictures of their beauty (even though a lot of people think of them as a hassle). I hope you get back out to NC one day! Thanks for the comment :)

Your photos of the wisteria were beautiful. They also look great if planted on a trellis. The flower clusters that hang down are so pretty when viewed that way.

Wisteria is so beautiful and it is one of my favorite flowers. But unfortunately I can not have one myself because of the climate here in Sweden where I live, so I am thrilled to be able to see them like this! I know that Wisteria is more common in south Sweden but they don't become as big as in your photos. Your photos are wonderful!
