Not particularly fussy about soil, but it does flower better in sun.

I also had beautiful wisteria running across a porch, very old however. Like perhaps twenty years. If you want to run it. If for a post, obviously grows faster. I saw four in a square by a swimming pool and they looked spectacular. I don't think they are fussy but do not like or thrive where it is wet or soggy. Wells
