18 Photos Of London That Prove Wisteria Hysteria Is Alive And Well

Wisteria

Cherry blossoms? So over it. It’s all about wisteria hysteria now.

Trends come and go, but some things never go out of style. Take the perfect purple phenomenon about to hit the capital: the Elizabeth line wisteria. Currently in full bloom, and snaking its way over everywhere that you and I can’t afford to live, wisteria hysteria is back again – and Instagram, as always, is there to capture it all.
