Q.Is Wisteria Slow Growing In Zone 5?

Zone 61615 | Anonymous added on January 30, 2021 | Answered

Hi! I am hearing conflicting advice when it comes to wisteria in my zone 5b! I have been considering growing amethyst falls wisteria or blue moon wisteria up a pergola on my property. I am concerned about the speed of growth of this plant. I was told that in my zone it will grow a lot slower…is this true? I don’t want to plant something that will overtake my structure quickly and ruin it!
