A wistaria vine in Sierra Madre, California has been named as the World's Largest Flowering Plant by the Guinness Book of World Records. This vine is so big it has its own festival! William and Alice Brugman planted it in 1894 to celebrate the purchase of their new home. The wistaria eventually destroyed the house! 116 years later, it is healthy and sprouts about a million and half blooms every year.
