This 144-Year-Old Wisteria In Japan Looks Like A Pink Sky

These stunning pictures, which look like a glorious late evening sky with dashes of pink and purple, are actually photos of Japan’s largest wisteria (or wistaria, depending on whom you ask) plant.

This beautiful plant, located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan, is certainly not the largest in the world, but it still comes in at an impressive 1,990 square meters (or half an acre) and dates back to around 1870 (the largest, at about 4,000 square meters, is the wisteria vine in Sierra Madre, California). Although these plants can look like trees, they’re actually flowering vines. Because its vines have the potential to get very heavy, this old plant’s entire structure is held up on steel supports, allowing visitors to walk below its canopy and bask in the pink and purple light cast by its beautiful blossoms.

Now scroll down below to check these impressively beautiful vines for yourself!
