Make a statement with wisteria; this vine is a showstopper in spring when it bears its hanging, grapelike clusters of fragrant blooms. Some varieties have huge flower clusters -- to 2 feet! In fall, the foliage takes on cheery yellow tones, too.

Wisteria is a great choice for adding privacy to sturdy pergolas. Note: Some types of wisteria are considered invasive pests; check for any local restrictions before planting it.

Also: All parts of this plant, especially the seeds, are poisonous.
