Wisteria frutescens (or likely macrostachya) ''Dam - B''
A number of years ago our dear friend and pioneer Texas native plantsman the late Lynn Lowerey found a great selection of native Wisteria near the dam of an east Texsas reservoir. The dam was known as "Dam - B" and Lynn gave that name to the plant (though some contend it was "Damn Bee") It has been classified as Wisteria frutescens though we feel that the foliage and longer blue flower clusters fit our other native species the Kentucky Wisteria (Wisteria macrostachya). It is a choice ornamentl vine for a post or trellis abd is much less rampant than the commonly cultivated Chinese and Japanese species. We must thank Dr. David Creech of Stephen F. Austin State University in Navcogdoches, Texas for our start of this and several othr fine plants.
