i love wisteria. when i was growing up, my grandparents had a huge bush of wisteria in their front yard, and it was always so beautiful in the spring, and smelled good, too! i miss them and that wisteria bush.
(native gardening) Gorgeous mix of Mediterranean and California native plants in this low-water landscape designed by Arleen Ferrara of Satori Garden Design. This is like the California version of Beth Chatto's dry garden in the UK.
I would love to walk under this gorgeous canopy and allow the dense foliage provide cool shade during the warmer months, then as the weather cools and the leaves fall, the winter sun is allowed to penetrate. The flowers are highly scented.
