Blooming in June on new growth, individual flowers are borne on long showy racemes and open in a lovely shade of dark lavender before fading. Summer Cascade is a beautiful flowering vine that can easily cover an arbor or pergola, creating a cool, shady place. Producing an interesting seedpod in late summer, this vine has lovely multi-season interests and is more reliably cold hardy than other wisteria. In addition, Summer Cascade is also deer resistant and has a delightful smell.
