Garden Tour: Lake Como, Italy

Italian Garden with Wisteria; Lake Como

Wisteria, ivy, and agave are what make this Italian garden in Lake Como so spectacular — oh, and let’s not forget the view. On a recent trip to Italy, we walked around this garden all
day, and I couldn’t bring myself to leave until a torrential downpour forced me out. The wisteria were especially stunning — we had arrived within the two week window when they bloomed in this area, filling the air with their grape-juice aroma. I came back with dreams of covering my home in ivy, growing agaves that are larger and taller than any human, and seeing purple blossoms of wisteria cascade from every wall. Procure that view and I’m all set.
