The wisteria vine in Nell Solt's Sierra Madre backyard holds over 1 million blooms at its peak and weighs over 250 tons.

And the only chance to see it will be this Sunday, during the annual festival at which she opens her backyard for the horticulture-admiring public.

The viewing is part of the annual Sierra Madre Wistaria Festival downtown, which features vendors, arts and crafts and a shuttle to Solt's home.

Her vine has been certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's largest blossoming plant.

The festival will be held Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Sierra Madre and the vine viewing is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
