Wisteria draped pergolas

IMG_5602.jpg

We use wisteria in many of our gardens, purple, pink and white forms. Grown across fences, as shrubs in pots or low along parapet walls its speedy growth and two flowerings help bring life to new gardens. 

The classic uses of wisterias grown over the facades of houses or over the open frames of pergolas cannot be beaten for clothing otherwise hard built structures. 

This pergola with materials in a restrained palette built in a classical manner matched with straight forward Wisteria sinensis creates a strong space in which to sit and take in the adjacent garden.
