As long as the temps don't get below -15 or -20, the plant will survive. It is hardy from zones 5 to 9, and it looks like most of your state falls within range. If you are concerned, it wouldn't hurt to wrap something around them to keep them warm on the coldest nights.

Here is an article with some more interesting information on the plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/wisteria/growing-wisteria-in-container.htm
