Main characteristics of wisteria flowers
As many of you will know, this climbing shrub with remarkable growth generates very showy and fragrant flowers, which have made it very famous. In summer it develops a characteristic intense green foliage, while flowering occurs in the spring months.

Since Glicine develops by twisting like liana around any pole it encounters on its way, both in a clockwise and reverse direction, it is particularly suitable for adorning the walls of villas or for covering pergolas, fences and balconies of buildings.
According to the floral language, that is, the particular interpretative code that attributes a precise meaning to each flower, the Wisteria represents the sacred value of friendship and therefore giving someone this plant is an act of esteem, trust and openness towards him, a step for the construction or celebration of a solid friendship and in fact in ancient times the Japanese emperors, during their travels, were used to bringing with them bonsai specimens of Wisteria, to be donated to the inhabitants of the new countries they were visiting, as a sign of peace.
