Fragrant racemes of wisteria are coming into full bloom now, forming layered veils of white to deepest purple-coloured flowers that transform south- and west-facing walls, houses and structures in the garden.
Here in the micro climate of London, some of the hardy, deciduous plants are so far along that in places, they are already beginning to go over. Fortunately, just along the motorway in the Cotswolds, and beyond, the flowers were only just beginning to unfurl during the May Day holiday weekend.
This beautiful white variety is W. floribunda ‘Alba’ entwined with Cornus alternifolia ‘Agent’ (picture 2), and growing alongside the papery flowers of the rock rose (picture 3), Cistus, all photographed at the White Garden at Apple Court, Hampshire.
