I just purchased a wisteria falls. What am I getting myself into. Also, if the smell is so bad why do nurseries sell it?

Many plants can produce an aroma like cat pee - juniper tams are known for it as are certain species of boxwood. And apparently Amethyst Falls wisteria, too!! Some people are more sensitive to this odor than others.
Chinese and Japanese wisteria have pleasant scents - the American ones are described as 'musk' scented.
The garden center may let you return you plant and choose something else.
