Sunny,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Most types of wisteria need a period of cold winter temps to allow them to break dormancy and bloom well. They are not rated for your hardiness zone or heat zone. However there is a type of wisteria that can be grown that far south:

CHINESE EVERGREEN WISTERIA (Millettia taiwanensis)

The following web page has more info on it, as well as a photo:

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
