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!
I want to get an arbor--maybe when I do, I'll try the wisteria!

I had no idea that Virginia creeper got berries! I'm always so busy trying to rip it out that I guess I never looked at it to see if there were any! That might explain why there are always so many birds in it late summer and fall!
