This is another selection of an American (native) wisteria vine, the so-called Kentucky wisteria, Wisteria frutescens var macrostachya ’Blue Moon.’ Typing that brings an early recording by Elvis of "Blue Moon of Kentucky" to mind. Perhaps that’s why this selection was so named; I don’t know. I know I was born in Kentucky mid 1940’s so add to the mix.
We got our stock plant from the now defunct Rippingale Nursery in Oregon, folks who then were collecting all the wisteria species and cultivars they could find (much like we chased every plant in the species "Hydrangea"). Anyway, it is a native vine that is vigorous but not invasive with a fine light blue flower and faint, subtle fragrance. Needs sun to bloom well. Quite hardy. Zones 5 - 9.
