Yeh--the stuff is rampant. Not as bad as kudzu, but pretty bad. (There are now cultivars available that are quite easy to keep in check if one does crave a wisteria in the garden but wants to be ecologically responsible.

I admit to a secret fondness for it ever since reading Clyde Edgarton's "The Float Plane Notebook" in which the wisteria in the family graveyard plays a key role as observer of the the events of generations of a family--holding mysteries and secrets.

Guilty pleasures.
