May 24, 2010 | by | 0 Comments

This beautiful wisteria arch is still drawing crowds to a country garden – as it reaches its 130TH birthday.

The stunning purple wisteria was planted in 1880 where it was enjoyed by generations of Victorian families.

It is still producing flowers more than a century later and is the second largest wisteria arch in Britain.

The 45m archway is now in full bloom and forms the centrepiece of Pinces Gardens in Exeter, Devon.

A spokesman said: ”The wisteria arch is 130 years old but when in full bloom it still attracts crowds of visitors.

”The sweet-scented purple wisteria flowers are about to give over to leafy green foliage.”
