It is the largest wisteria in Japan. It is 150 years old. It has been compared to the Ewa tree from the film Avatar, the All-Mother of Nature, which keeps the planet's ecosystem in perfect balance and condition.
This plant from Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan occupies an impressive 1990 square metres and dates from around 1870. Although wisteria look like trees, they are actually vines. As they can become very heavy over time, the entire structure is supported by steel supports, allowing visitors to walk under the vault and enjoy the pink and purple sky of flowers.
