"Four tree sparrows alight upon on a flowering wisteria. The wisteria, named after the American anatomist Casper Wistar, is a woody, deciduous climbing shrub of the Leguminosae that grows wild in mountainous areas of Japan. Prized for its drooping clusters of blue, purple and white flowers, the wisteria is also used in garden designs." CCC

A superb example of a seldom seen over-sized Koson design.
