The fragrant Wisteria Sinensis clings to the side of a house in Lucchio, Tuscany in Italy, Europe.

The fragrant wisteria sinensis is a very fitting vine to be found in the village of Lucchio in Tuscany, Italy. The village houses cling to the side of a steep cliff, and, in turn, the wisteria clings to the walls of the houses.

The fragrant wisteria sinensis was introduced to Europe from China in 1816 and belongs to the pea family. It was named for Caspar Wistar (1761-1818) and was intended to be called wistarias, but due to a spelling error the genus became wisterias.

The pendulous, blue racemes of the wisteria sinensis flower before the leaves appear, and can be found in temperate climates in gardens and on walls all over the world. The seedpods, bark and sap of the wisteria are all toxic to humans and may cause nausea and gastric problems if ingested, but birds can eat the young buds without ill effects.
