Wisteria, Japanese (Wisteria floribunda), packet of 5 seeds
Family: Legume (Fabaceae)
Hardy to Zones 5 to 9
Deciduous woody climber native to East Asia and Japan. Valued for its incredibly beautiful and aromatic flowers that droop down like bunches of Elysian grapes, the vine gives a classic appearance and romantic fragrance to trellises, pergolas, throughways and the summer porch. Traditional usage (TCM): antitumor. The vines themselves are useful in rope making and are used in bridge construction in Asia. Plant prefers a warm, sunny exposure and poor soil. Excellent in large pots and half-barrels—root constriction encourages flowering. Excellent choice for large pots and half barrels. Do not eat seeds–they are toxic. Nick seed, soak overnight and sow warm. Easy and volcanic germinator.
5 seeds/pkt, open pollinated
could you show a photo of or at least a very detailed description of the seeds. I was given some seeds and told that they were Japanese wisteria seeds but I’m not sure.

Wisteria seeds from the different species all look the same–brown, flattened, about the size of a dime.
