144-Year-Old Wisteria

This plant is located in the Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan. It looks like a marvelous pink and purple lit night sky; however, it is only a plant. Nature is truly incredible.

This plant in particular is not the largest in the world, but it does measure around 1,990 square meters or about half an acre. The largest is actually in Sierra Madre, California, measuring about 4,000 square meters. That would take a lot of work to maintain, but it would be so worth it!

Plant, not Tree

It goes back to the 1870s. While it looks like an actual tree, it is, in fact, just vines. This plant belongs to the legume family. It is native to China, Japan, Eastern United States, and Korea. Many plants now can be cultivated anywhere, so even you can grow one if you want!

Once these vines get bigger, they also become very heavy, so most of these plants are supported by steal to keep them upright. That way visitors can walk under this magnificent plant and take in all its beauty.

They range from pink to purple blossoms. They are one of the most beautiful plants I have ever seen. I would love to walk under the canopy and see their blossoms.

Most people described it as looking at a pink night sky from underneath. The pictures look exactly like that to me, but I know they are much more glorious in person as well.

My goodness…that is just stunning! I love wisteria. I’m currently in England and saw several houses just covered with it. I loved every second of it.
