After cherry blossom season ends in Japan, people turn their attention to wisteria. This flower blooms around late April and early May.

Wisteria colors range from blue, pink, purple to white. Nevertheless, they are all beautiful and the view is just as magnificent as the cherry blossom, if not more.

Wisteria also blooms in America. But Japanese wisteria, called Wisteria floribunda, is not native to North American and is considered a different species of plant. Many people consider it be much more beautiful than the American wisteria.
