  1. Lynette, I just saw your comment on Merisi's blog. Wistaria are a faourite climber from temperate to semi-tropical zones world wide. The best examples I have seen have been in London on the Thames embankment and in the Rhineland in Germany. There are some famous examples in California and Australia and many other places.
