Evergreen Wisteria

Evergreen Wisteria (Wisteriopsis reticulata, 网络夏藤).

A scrambling shrub, they started to bloom on Yuelu Mountain in the first week of June, though I saw some plants blooming a couple weeks earlier further East of here near Liuyang. Its burst of purple and yellow are always striking, whatever part of summer they first appear on the edges of the forests.
