Wisteria arbours

Wisteria arbours

Two wisteria arbours run either side of the Mediterranean Garden, and from around mid-September each year their fragrant blooms emerge. First come the white flowers of the cultivar Wisteria sinensis, closely followed by the purple blooms of Wisteria floribunda, which peak towards the end of September.

Walking under their perfumed arches is a stunning botanical experience and a springtime delight.

The blooms usually finish by early October so plan your visit to see them at their best!
