These flowers were growing in the wild in the Himalayas. They look like Wisteria, but I am not sure whether it is wisteria.
Wisteria or Wistaria as it is sometimes spelled, is named after the scientist Henry Wistar.
The flowers are pea shaped and profuse.
My grateful thanks to the team of the meme 'Today's Flowers" for hosting the interesting meme.
So lovely! Never seen white wisteria before, thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Love the wisteria, very pretty. I usually see purple color here.ReplyDelete
Yes it's a beautiful tree.
Gorgeous flowers and they do look like wisteria to me. I actually saw some white wisteria at a house here in Seattle -- wish I'd had my camera! Terrific captures! Hope you have a wonderful week!ReplyDelete
Lovely flowers! I would have said wisteria too but not an expert by any means. Great photos, thank you for sharing them.ReplyDelete
Looks like wisteria to me! I love the branch form in the last photo.ReplyDelete
They are completely gorgeous. Wow.ReplyDelete
Ana, thanks for your visit and comment.ReplyDelete
Eileeninmd, white wisteria is quite common in the Himalayas.
Ellada,the tree was breath taking!
Sylvia, thanks for your comment.
Denise, thank you.
Rainforest gardener, I am not sure because wisteria is usually a climber and this was a small tree.
Sure does look like Wisteria.ReplyDelete
Don't know if it really becomes a tree here or just finds a tree and wraps it's self around it.
I'm wondering if the flowers are scented. I have a white flowering wisteria in my garden. It has a wonderful scent and the bees love its flowers :-)ReplyDelete
As Patsi says, it does ususally wrap around but in my case its a Pergola post. One of the strongest characteristics is its fantastic twisted almost rope like main stems that contort into wonderful shapes.
I've never seen a tree variety but the leaves and flowers look like wisteria to me too. Thanks for sharing this. Thanks also for popping by my blog. As you will have seen my wisteria flowers are still in bud. It's always an exciting moment when they open :-D
The flower look so beautiful! ohhh....How i wish to visit Himalaya one day!ReplyDelete
It is really a beautifull sight, These are White Locust Tree a.k.a False Acacia
These are very common here in Himachal, There are small thorns at the base of the leaves.
Patsi, I believe it is a White Locust tree, also known as False Acacia.ReplyDelete
Shirl, it must be exciting to see the wisteria blooms open:-)
Malar, I hope you will visit the Himalayas soon.
Zindagi, thanks for the information. It is a very beautiful tree.
Such a beautiful tree! Lovely flowers.ReplyDelete
They do look a lot like Wisteria, but whatever they are they're very pretty.ReplyDelete
They sure look like wisteria. Another blogger posted a similar looking flower a few weeks ago. Do these flowers give off any scent?ReplyDelete
What a beautiful tree! I love those flowers, such a profusion of them.ReplyDelete
How lovely to see white Wisteria! Beautiful photos! ;>)ReplyDelete
It is very beautiful. Maybe it is not Wisteria, because it is viny as i've seen in Sweden and Turkey, as well as the photos of some bloggers from Europe here. You said it maybe locust tree, is it the one whose seeds are made into gum or galactomannans?ReplyDelete
