For International Women's Day

By helenlinda
This is not assigned to this slot just because it is beautiful or a flower, but it is something to celebrate
Wisterias climb by twining their stems around any available support. W. floribunda (Japanese wisteria) twines clockwise when viewed from above, while W. sinensis twines counterclockwise. This is an aid in identifying the two most common species of wisteria.[16] They can climb as high as 20 m (66 ft) above the ground and spread out 10 m (33 ft) laterally. The world's largest known wisteria is in Sierra Madre, California, measuring more than 1 acre (0.40 ha) in size and weighing 250 tons. Planted in 1894, it is of the 'Chinese lavender' variety.

I wonder how they know which way to twine themselves? It's very beautiful, and it's a lovely capture here, Helen 😃👍
