Question Asked: This plant is growing from a root piece taken from a large plant with purple flower clusters in Missiissippi. It was thought to be a "wisteria". I don't think so! What is your thought?

Answer: Hi Torje-

My first thought is that this isn't wisteria but looks a lot like pepper vine (ampelopsis arborea).
