Wisteria also comes in purple and the vines send out tendrils that latch onto anything in sight. Wisteria used to be common on the wrap-around porches of Victorian homes, twining itself through the gingerbread trim and drooping in a graceful curtain.

And apparently you don't have to worry about this one taking the siding off your house because readers tell me it is not a wisteria, but a Golden Chain (laburnum) Tree.

This looks like a Golden Chain (Laburnum) tree not a Wisteria.

Maybe that's why we don't see a lot of old Victorian homes - Cisco Morris says don't attach wisteria to your house because it will pull it down!

This is not wisteria. This is Labernum, commonly known as Golden Chain.
