It is hardy here! We are Zone 2-3 with our winters regularly down to -40C, with several weeks in the -35C range. I planted one pot of Wisteria last fall that had dried out in the pot and all the leaves fell off. I thought it was a goner, but I figured what the heck I'll plant it anyway. I loosened up the dirt around it and watered the heck out of it. That was literally only a couple weeks before the first frost. Very surprisingly it came up this spring! So it must be hardy!
