Are there types of Wisteria that will grow in northern Illinois?
I lived in Atlanta for many years and was always loved the Wisteria in the springtime. I would like to add some to my garden in the Chicago area. How would wisteria do in this climate or are there certain hardy types that could survive in this climate?
