Wisterias are known for their dramatic floral display and Jako is no exception. Noted for its exceptional fragrance, bearing clusters of pea-like, highly perfumed white flowers up to 30cm long in early spring. Flowers are followed by velvety, green, bean-like pods and attractive, dense, bright green pinnate foliage. Can be grown against a wall, arbours, pergolas, trellises and fences but will require a sturdy supportive structure to do so.
