Wistera - a good dark coloured one - any ideas ?

I am planning to plant a wisteria to grow up the front of my house.  I currently have one in my back garden which is called Lavender Lace but, although very pretty and scented, the flowers are very light in colour.

As my house is painted a cream colour I want a darkish colour wisteria which will really show up against the cream background.

Anyone got any ideas.  I have heard that Black Dragon is supposed to be a good one, anyone got this one ?  and if so would you recommend it.


  • I don't know the name of the variety but  a cottage I know has a very dark one against a grey wall back ground and it looks fabulous when it comes out.
