This 144-Year-Old Wisteria In Japan Is A Pink Beauty.

WORLD Warotter

This plant, located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan, is not the largest in the world, but it still comes in at an impressive 1,990 square meters (or half an acre) and dates back to around 1870 (the largest, at about 4,000 square meters, is the wisteria vine in Sierra Madre, California). Although wisterias can look like trees, they’re actually vines. Because its vines have the potential to get very heavy, this plant’s structure is held up on steel supports, allowing visitors to walk below and bask in the pink and purple light cast by its beautiful hanging blossoms.
