With origins in China, Korea, Japan, and the Eastern United States, wisteria holds deep cultural symbolism. In Korea, the flower represents devotion that transcends death, while in Japan, it is a symbol of good luck, success, and longevity. In the Victorian language of flowers, it signifies obsessive and over-passionate love. Our property houses the beautiful Chinese Wisteria, which is easily identifiable by the way its vines climb counterclockwise up the sides of the former Skinner home. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to see this magnificent plant in full bloom. Planted in 1880 by Sarah Skinner, these fast-growing vines have covered the house and gave the property the name its most known by, Wistariahurst.
These fast-growing and versatile plants add so much beauty, color, and fragrance to any landscape. We invite you to take the time to come and witness the growth and bloom of our wisteria vines. We’ll keep you updated on the progress of the blooms!
