Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda ‘Black Dragon’/’Yae-kokuryu’) sometimes seedlings is a bit different. This one has reddish brown young leaves and stem. 日本黑龍紫藤實生苗有時會有些微變異. 這株的新葉及莖幹明顯呈紅褐色.

It has beautiful fragrant double purple long clusters of flowers, gorgeous!   Bloom in mid spring to late spring.   Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun location.   Flowers attract bees and butterflies.   Excellent for bonsai tree, can be trained for a free standing tree or let it climb as a vine on strong structure.   Mature size:20′-40′(L) X 20′-40′(W).  USDA Zones:4-9.  Fast growing.  Propagate by seeds, cuttings, layering and grafting.  Plant is toxic if ingested.  Seed germinate easily with the seed coating on or off in just few days. Originally thought it is same black dragon but it turns out not the same, I wonder if the sign of the name got mixed up?

這種紫藤有著美麗芳香重瓣紫花的垂墜長花序,真的很美!  於仲春開到春末.  容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照處.  花頗吸引蜂蝶.  盆景或地植皆適宜,除了一般為攀爬於棚架上外也能訓練成獨立無支撐物的樹型.  成熟株高/長20-40呎/寬幅. 耐寒也頗耐熱. 生長速度很快.  繁殖以種子,扦插,壓條/高壓或嫁接方式來進行.  植株有毒勿食.  孵紫藤種子很容易,可去種皮或不去種子皆可都是幾天就能發芽. 原以為是八重黑龍Naganoda“BlackDragon”結果不是,不知道是植物園牌子寫錯了還是? 原來所謂黑龍有分黑龍(非重瓣)及八重黑龍(重瓣).
