Callerya megasperma – Native Wisteria

Above ground growth needs to be controlled and what that implies for the roots means it’s not really a small garden plant, so it’s in a pot.

It’s been shifted around the garden looking for a home, finishing up in the front garden where it can climb the fence.

New leaves on the Callerya megasperma. No flowers yet.
