Wisteria support and wind

Zone Centerville, WA | annekenay added on September 15, 2015 | Answered

We recently dug a pond in the back field, and I'd like to plant a garden around it. However, there is no shade to sit in and enjoy the view. I just now thought of building an arbor and planting wisteria to grow up it to provide shade. However, there is no wind protection at all. Can wisteria survive 30+ MPH wind in the spring and fall with a support system (arbor)?

An open windy area would not be a good situation for Wisteria. The drying wind would certainly take it's toll on nearly any plant.
You may want to start the landscaping with larger trees and shrubs to create a backdrop for smaller or more tender plantings.
