Wisteria Trunk

September 7, 2009 § Leave a comment


The oldest Wisteria West of the Mississippi is here in Santa Clara. Planted not far from where Native American parishioners were said to have witnessed The Holy Man of Santa Clara -Padre Magín Catalá  levitating a distance off the floor and received mid-air by the Corpus he had knelt before. The Wisteria  dates to when Abraham Lincoln was president.

Here is an interesting paper on the various sites of Mission Santa Clara de Asis;
