Type Species

The Kentucky Wisteria (Wisteria macrostachya) is a woody deciduous vine found in the southeastern United States, including its namesake state of Kentucky. It is very similar to the American Wisteria (Wisteria frutescens).

Kentucky Wisteria bears unscented bluish-purple flowers in racemes 15-30 cm long, a generally average length for the Wisteria family. It produces these flowers after growing only two to three years, making it the quickest wisteria to bloom. Otherwise, its soil and light requirements, behavior, and characteristics are identical to the American Wisteria.
